  • Just love this place! If you want to learn all about the CT River Valley and it's place in history, this is the place to go. They also rent kayaks and canoes and offer guided tours if North and South cove!
  • Great Day to Watch the Eagles. Sunny, 34 degrees and not to windy. Saw 14 eagles along with geese, ducks a swan. The guides were great and the river tour was a nice 1:45 trip. Got dinner great photos from the back of the deck. Would do again. The museum took about 45 minutes and was filled with some interesting information about the area and history of the river.
