  • This is a great place to bring your family for an interactive, educational, fun day. My family and friends have been meeting here for the past 5 or more years. And the older kids, 10 and 11, are having as much fun as the 5 and 6 year olds. There is on-site parking, which costs about $10 for 4 hours. There is a Subway on site if you get hungry, or you can bring your own food. Easy on/off 91.
  • Went to see the mummy exhibit today. Definitely well put together. It consisted of artifacts from multiple museums plus a mummy made from a U.S. university using traditional ancient Egyptian tools. Very interesting...kind of sad...there were a few babies... Take your kid while you have the chance. Not much of this kind of stuff in museums in CT.
