Children's Museum of Southeastern Connecticut

The Children’s Museum of Southeastern Connecticut merges the worlds of science and art with imaginative play. Visitors can start in the Imagination Stations and climb aboard a kid-sized fishing boat and lighthouse, hop into the seat of a real fire engine, play the role of TV weather reporter, or “cook" exotic recipes in the Global Café. Then move on to the Discovery Room with science and engineering based activities and the museum’s animal residents. Head outdoors where children can climb to the highest perch of the tree house and view Long Island Sound, test themselves on an obstacle course, or make a splash as they play at the water and bubbles tables.
