  • This museum is great for all ages. They have a ton of hands-on exhibits. My son especially loved the water play room. We stayed an hour their alone! We only went for a few hours, but easily could've spent 5 or 6 hours there trying to explore everything!
  • This is the premiere children's museum in CT. There are hands on exhibits around every corner with more information and facts than one could imagine. Whether it's Enviromental, STEM, Ecological or Basic Fundamentals and Understanding your children will be in awe. Parents... Photo opportunities that make for great family photo memories are endless. Take lots of pictures of those big natural smiles and expressions of joy. Walk around outside (fresh air break) for a while along the lower promenade as well. Hartford has so much to offer, take advantage when you are here. Everyone have fun...Enjoy😀
