It’s time to explore! From July 1 to September 6, Connecticut children age 18 and under plus one accompanying adult can visit participating museums free of charge through the Connecticut Summer at the Museum program.

The program is part of Governor Lamont’s larger plan to use recovery funds to provide students and families with engaging summer enrichment and learning experiences in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

From art and children’s museums and historical sites to zoos, aquariums, and science centers, here’s a list of properties participating in #CTSummerMuseums. Please make sure you check each museum for online advance ticketing and reservations, as they may be required. This program is geared towards families exploring together, not large camp groups.

Connecticut Summer at the Museum is made possible through an investment from the federal COVID-19 recovery funding Connecticut is receiving from the American Rescue Plan Act. The program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts in partnership with Connecticut Humanities.
