Connecticut Children's Museum

The Connecticut Children’s Museum is home to eight thematic rooms in which children can explore art, nature, logic, and music. From the naturalist room to the interpersonal room, students are placed in child-friendly spaces where they can play make-believe, explore and create their own museum experience. In the Musical Room, students play instruments, visit the table exhibits filled with ocean drums, guitars and saxophones and perform their own songs surrounded by a colorful musical mural. English, Spanish, and American Sign Language are explored in the Reflections Room where mirrors illuminate literature and a theatrical stage for students to jump into their favorite stories.
