Most museums tend to stay put, but in Norwalk, history has been on the move. Once housed in the former South Norwalk City Hall, the museum was part of the historic district that denied SoNo. Today the museum has returned to one of its original locations, in the former Lockwood house on East Ave. But wait don’t be confused by the numerous former Lockwood houses throughout Norwalk, they were an impressive and prolific family. Which is a long way of saying that one of the best places to learn about Norwalk History is at the Norwalk Historical Society Museum.

For those into the genealogy research, a trip to one of the original Carnegie built libraries in Connecticut, the Norwalk Library on Mott Street offers the Norwalk History Room and a friendly staff to help your genealogical research.

Special programming occurs at the Mill Hill Town House, which was the site of the original meeting house that dates back to the founding of Norwalk.
