DANBURY, Conn. -- The Danbury Museum & Historical Society will launch a new exhibit, "Toy Time: Playful Pieces," on Saturday, June 11. 

This free exhibit will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be on display through Oct. 29. 

The exhibit features something for kids of all ages. Vintage toys from the museum collection will be showcased including Lincoln Logs, dolls, tin toys, trains, board games and puzzles, as well as outdoor play items and much more. 

“We’re excited about this exhibit because we feel it will spark a great deal of community conversation. Parents and grandparents with their children, neighbors, school classmates, brothers and sisters will all find pieces that boys and girls of every generation have enjoyed,” said Executive Director Brigid Guertin. “This summer is a great time to visit the museum and awaken fond memories of past play dates. Our extensive toy collection will surely help folks do just that.” 

The Rotary Club of Danbury, The CT Institute for Communities and Mulvaney Mechanical, Inc. have provided support as sponsors of the Toy Time exhibit. 

In addition to the exhibit opening on Saturday, the museum will offer free admission all day and tours of its historic buildings: The John & Mary Rider House, c.1785; The John Dodd Hat Shop, c. 1790; The Marian Anderson Studio; and the Little Red Schoolhouse from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., as part of CT Open House Day.
