The best part of the experience is the organization and cleanliness of the exhibits. K of C involvement in WWI is a must for all ages. Easy to follow, not overly wordy, great visuals and hands on components. The Irish Immigration exhibit was eye opening....More

This was recommended by Chamber of Commerce and was quite close to our hotel. Interesting special exhibitions. We saw the present one on the Irish Famine (excellent movie) and also the the poets/soldiers of WW1. Of course, this museum would be of particular interest to...More

This free museum with easy access and free parking is a hidden gem in the New Haven museum scene. The exhibits grab your attention but not too much of your time. Well worth return visdits.

Thank you, and your grandson, for visiting. For most, World War I is recent enough to be relevant, but not to remember. The exhibit helps give perspective to its significance as the first international conflict in modern history. Please visit again … and invite others!
