Telling our veterans' stories
The Stratford Veterans Museum's mission is to recognize those veterans from Stratford who have served our country honorably in war and in peace and to act as a repository for their stories. The museum is designed to accommodate school children to foster their appreciation of United States history and the sacrifices of those men and woman who made our country possible. The major goal for the museum is to make it a site for school field trips. If you are a veteran, who lives in/or has lived in Stratford, or the family of a Stratford veteran, and would like to share your story of service, or if you have items related to a Stratford veteran you would like to loan or donate, please email us.
Our Regular Hours are:
Wednesday: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sunday: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Please call for appointment for other times at 203-583-4484.

Veterans Museum Going Interactive
After part of its ongoing evolution of its displays, the Stratford Veterans Museum has incorporated two interactive exhibits. Located in the basement of the museum these new exhibits include a section of a World War I trench (built by museum board member George Grom) and a flight simulator (obtained through the work of board member Rob Goetz). Both exhibits (as well as others in the making) will be open to the public and school field trips in the near future.
