Inspire Center – New Theme!

The Inspire Center brings history and problem-solving together in a hands-on creative space for visitors of all ages! Look closely at objects from the Connecticut Museum collection, get inspired, and work together to create something new. With objects and themes changing monthly, you can enjoy unique experiences all year long! November’s challenge is to invent a new way to do a magic trick!

Family Program: Busy Day at the Museum

Jump into the world of Richard Scarry's Busy Town! Learn about the Connecticut author and illustrator who created this iconic make-believe world for children's books, pose in a photo booth with cut outs of some of the characters, play games, and design your own vehicle inspired by the whacky, one-of-a-kind vehicles driven by the citizens of Busytown!
