Norwalk's city hall has since moved to 125 East Avenue. The first and second floors of the old structure later became home to Norwalk Museum, which was operated by the city government. As a museum, the building contained archival material and other items related to Norwalk's culture and history, including documents, items of significance to the history of Norwalk and artwork.
In May 2012, the city removed funding for operation of the museum. The old city hall was not owned by the city, and according to city officials the annual rent was not justified by the several thousand annual visitors. The museum was closed to the public later that month. The city plans to transfer the exhibits and archival documents located at the old city hall to temporary storage and eventually redisplay the material at another location
