Whether the museum-goer wants to travel to the colonial era, walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs, view a great art collection or march about the battlements of a castle, here are just five of the top museums in Connecticut that offer tours to their visitors.
Visiting a literary landmark is not like visiting a museum. It is one special place that exudes a distinct personality.
As one of the original 13 colonies, Connecticut is rich in history – and apparently also in ghosts. Famous, infamous and even ordinary residents of the state allegedly still linger in spirit form in its stately homes, abandoned villages and, of course, its graveyards.
Some of the best museums in Hartford contain no art at all. Instead, they contain a collection of the state’s history through science, manuscripts, artifacts and aviation. So whether you’re an adult or a young child, there’s something for everyone at these museums.
