When the state created their summer learning enrichment program to offer children and an accompanying adult free admission to museums and cultural sites, Connecticut offered grants to the organizations.  But they had to be a non-profit, and municipal agencies weren't eligible.  Danbury Representative Ken Gucker learned that the Danbury Museum and Historical Society was ineligible, called Connecticut Humanities and they corrected the oversight.  The Danbury Museum was awarded about 13-thousand dollars to be part of this Connecticut Summer at the Museum initiative.  They'll offer guided tours of four historic buildings Wednesday through Saturday, from noon to 4pm.  That includes John and Mary Rider House, John Dodd Hat Shop, Marian Anderson studio and the Little Red Schoolhouse.
