  • A very small but interesting museum. A true look at a slice of Americana. Extremely helpful docent and it is free. I wish it was larger!

  • Very Good. The gentleman we spoke with there were very Knowledgeable. Nice place to Visit...
  • Small industrial history museum with many examples of hundreds of products made in New Britain. By the turn of the century this city supplied more goods than any other in the US including Chicago and Cleveland by a wide margin. It was a virtual powerhouse fueled by inventors, their patents and immigrants from around the world.
