  • A wonderful museum for the whole family. Set up excellent! The staff a very well informed about exhibitions and friendly. It's a gem in the city of New Haven Free parking under the museum and elevators and benches throughout the museum make it a comfortable place for any ones loved one to tour in comfort. If you are in New Haven,do visit this museum. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
  • You may never have thought to visit this museum as you may not be a Knight or Catholic. However, there are some great displays for WWII buffs and a beautiful 9/11 memorial. Overall, it's very well done.
  • This is a smaller museum, but it is full of lots of artifacts from the Knights of Columbus. For KC's, its a treasure trove of the Order's history and heritage and how they worked so hard to get Catholics considered American. If you have some time to kill in New Haven, this is a must-see.
  • Pretty small museum that you can tour quickly in an afternoon. Some of the displays were interesting, but overall not one I'd revisit. If you're trying to kill time - go for it; however, I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
  • 哥倫布騎士團博物館,一個成立於一百多年前的天主教團體。
