  • This museum is one of my favorites in CT. It is large and spread out, and the installations are always interesting and well put together, I highly recommend a rainy day visit.

  • The building itself is art. If you like art, specifically paintings you will love the place. Actually it's worth a visit just for the architecture. There are masterpieces here that predate the birth of our country. No visit to Connecticut is complete without a stop here, at one of the oldest museums in the nation. If you have a B of A card you're in luck since this is on the 'Museums on Us' list.
  • Loved this museum! Not even sure I saw it all in one trip, so I'll have to go again! A few hallways were closed off, but the staff was super helpful in redirecting us to alternate paths. Great variety, too; great collection of modern and contemporary art, plus a big hall of classical oil painting. The curio and antiques cabinet room was really cool, too. Highly recommend this museum to art lovers.
