    YaleWomen DC January Salon

    Are you looking for a group or forum that will provide opportunities for thoughtful, meaningful conversation and connection? Inspired by the Enlightenment Salons of the 18th century, the DC Chapter of the Alumnae Network for Harvard Women (ANHW) and the DC Chapter of YaleWomen are co-hosting a series of Salons. The idea is to get together monthly with other curious, engaging women in a relaxed atmosphere to reflect and share perspectives on topics that are important to participants. This will be an evening of great company, lively dialogue, and vino and other happy hour fare. Before each meeting, we provide links to several internet articles for participants to read in advance (less than one hour total reading time). The event will be facilitated using different formats for small and larger group discussion.

    This event is limited to women alumnae of Harvard and Yale.

    Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen CT - Museum Trail - Barnum Museum

    YaleWomen would like to announce our next stop on the Museum Trail will be the (rescheduled!) visit to the historic Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, CT. Join us on Saturday, January 27 for a private tour with the museum’s Executive Director, Kathleen Maher, followed by a hard hat tour of the distinctive building's restoration.

    Conceived and constructed by American entrepreneur, showman, and politician P.T. Barnum (1810-1891), The Barnum Museum has served an international audience since 1893. P.T. Barnum's impact reaches deep into our American heritage and the story of his vast collection and contributions are preserved in his Bridgeport museum. The ornate, exotic building is a distinguishing feature of the City of Bridgeport.

    In 2010 the Barnum Museum was struck by an EF1 tornado, significantly damaging the historic landmark. The building sustained additional damage from hurricanes Irene and Sandy. While going through the re-building and re-envisioning process, a portion of the museum’s collection is on view in an ancillary space located BEHIND the museum in the adjacent People's United Bank Gallery. The 5,000-foot site houses thousands of objects that were out-loaded from the museum's historic building for safety and conservation following the tornado. Tour limited to ages 15 and up due to the rough state of the construction site.

    (Also: Barnum and Bridgeport are getting the Hollywood treatment. The Greatest Showman musical biopic starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum comes to theaters December 20.)
