Lost in New Haven

Lost in New Haven is a new museum and event space that tells the story of New Haveners’ creativity and ingenuity over the last several hundred years, with a mission to educate, inspire, and enrich our understanding of history through an immersive presentation of artifacts collected over a lifetime by artist and founder Robert S. Greenberg. The museum provides a gathering place for exploration, discovery, and conversation where visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the City’s rich history, becoming “lost” in a tangible exploration of the people and events that created New Haven.
