We have visited the Connecticut Historical Society (CHS) Museum in Hartford, Connecticut multiple times, most recently on Saturday, January 5, 2019, and have always enjoyed it. Both the permanent and special exhibits in this museum have consistently been nice representations of Connecticut’s history. Although we only were able to spend about an hour and a half at the museum this time, we estimate that it would take at least two hours to see this museum and appreciate all that it has to offer. Admission into this museum was free because it was the first Saturday of the month but museum passes may be available at your local library for free admission on other days.
A lot of information you can learn about CT by visiting CT Historical Society Museum in Hartford. The museum is open for public for free first Saturday each month. However, I was surprised to see the size of the museum and the artifacts they have I thought since it's named CT historical society, I thought it would be bigger and the most museum that has artifacts in the state.
