The mission of the Unionville Museum is to foster an appreciation of the history, culture and traditions of the village of Unionville, Connecticut by collecting and preserving artifacts from its history and using these artifacts to interpret and present Unionville’s story.
As usual in times of disaster Unionville residents, businesses and civic organizations meet the moment. Parents are home schooling their kids, teachers are connecting with their students online, and Stop & Shop is open from 6:00-7:30 a.m. just for seniors, an especially vulnerable group. Local restaurants are offering curbside pick-up and delivery services. Other businesses are closed following the Governor’s recommendations. They too are doing their part.
To chronicle Unionville’s response to this pandemic the Museum is collecting pictures and stories that show how we’re meeting the moment. If you have a photo you’d like to add to our collection or story you would like to share, please post it on our Facebook Page, send it to us in a Facebook message or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post some here. You might even see them in a Museum exhibit at some point.
The Museum, like most everything else is closed. We do have some exciting exhibits planned and hopefully will be open again by the time they're due to begin. Please check back for information on these exhibits. Like you, we look forward to getting back to our usual routine.

Team members answered the UCONN Health Center 's plea for help in making mask adapters to fit N95 masks that aren't sealing properly. UCONN Health Center has 40,00 masks that are useless without this piece. The Farmington Libraries' Maker Space expert Harry Trider obtained the specs and the students got to work making these critical pieces.
The students are also making bias tape folders for the Sewing Face Masks - Farmington Valley group. The group has already donated 3,500 face masks to local health care workers.
