Our Mission

The mission of The Barnum Museum is to be relevant institution of learning, committed to intellectual exchange, community engagement, and dedicated to the collection, preservation and interpretation of P.T. Barnum’s legacy and his genre in American history. The Museum is a public trust committed to expanding its presence in the community to serve as a centerpiece for cultural enrichment, a beacon of inspiration, and a symbol of achievement and economic vitality in the City of Bridgeport and throughout the region.

If you're as passionate about our cause as we are, it'd be amazing if you created a fundraiser on CrowdRise to raise money for our Charity. CrowdRise makes it super easy and fun, and your support is invaluable to our mission. Consider giving up your next birthday by asking for donations instead of gifts. Or run a marathon and ask your friends to sponsor you. We love getting donations but there's nothing better than when you go a step further and help us raise money from your network of friends. Lots of little donations really do add up. The power of the crowd is real. Please create a fundraiser and help us make a real-life difference for this incredibly important cause.
