Such a well-run organization with wonderfully curated exhibits. Both special exhibits and permanent. Subjects as wide-ranging as Tattoos & WW1. Something for all ages. Easy to get to from I-95.

Born in New Haven in 1946 and back for a visit. Enjoyed the displays, period furnishings, and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone from the New Haven area should make a visit!

I had no idea New Haven had such an interesting history--the manufacturing in the town was fascinating. A nice little museum with a lot of great information.
