“THE NOBLEST ART IS THAT OF MAKING OTHERS HAPPY!”

Adrienne Saint-Pierre

Curator

Adrienne Saint-Pierre is the Curator of the Barnum Museum’s amazing artifact collection and archive. As Curator she wears many hats in her job (though never ones from the collection!), but she enjoys the variety and the “detective work” involved in doing research. Adrienne manages not only the interpretation of the Museum’s remarkable collections but their well-being, making sure that historical collections are preserved, conserved and stored under the best conditions. Ms. Saint-Pierre has worked in the museum field for 35 years.  Prior to coming to the Barnum Museum, she worked at the Fairfield Museum and History Center, the Connecticut Historical Society, and the Wadsworth Atheneum.  She has been a consultant to a variety of museums, especially in her area of expertise: historic textiles and clothing.
