Displays tell the story of Norwich founder Capt. Alden Partridge (1785 -1854), and feature his uniform, swords and surveying equipment. Exhibition space is also devoted to the career of Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan (Class of 1959), former chief of staff of the Army and namesake of the museum. Exhibit cases throughout the museum present Norwich objects related to military history, academics, music and sports.
These displays allow us to rotate artifacts that are on display, helping to preserve fragile collection items. Changing exhibitions remain on view for about six months and present fresh and engaging exhibitions on a variety of themes. Please see the section on Current Exhibits to explore what’s up at the museum now. You can preview what we’re preparing in Upcoming Exhibits. An archive of our previous temporary shows is available under Past Exhibits.
