The P.T. Barnum You Never Knew

Talk explores many sides of Barnum. Known to the world as the ‘Great American Showman,' Barnum did more than create curiosities, he embraced the dream of a democratic nation and inspired American society to reach beyond expectations. Presented by Kathy Maher, Executive Director/Curator the talk explores the many sides of Barnum and brings his spirit back to life for the first time since 2010 when the museum was hit by a tornado. Bring a lunch. The Barnum Museum 820 Main Street, Bridgeport, 203-331-1104
