The Connecticut Historical Society, founded in 1825, houses an extensive and comprehensive collection of manuscripts, printed material, artifacts, and images that document the social, cultural, and familial history of Connecticut. In this special behind-the-scenes tour you will get access to two of the Connecticut Historical Society’s storage areas: the third floor furniture and textiles collection and the lower-level paintings storage. You will also get the chance to see some perennial staff favorites and learn how the collections are cared for to ensure they will be available for years to come.
Once the tour is over, you can explore the Connecticut Historical Society’s public galleries and exhibits, and drop in on a family friendly hands-on activity scheduled to take place. The Connecticut Historical Society is easily accessible from the area highways with ample free parking available.
