  • The museum has everything you wanna know about New Haven County's history. Alot to see, me and my 12 year old son spent 3 hours and the time flew by. We appreciated what they had to offer for the public. And the 1st Sunday of the month is free admission so we just donated a few dollars in the box near the entrance.
  • Large helpful staff. Teen area, chess tables, quiet areas, Cafe, downtown location
  • Some interesting exhibits. Especially the Amistad story is well documented. But a comprehensive story of the city of New Haven is lacking.
  • I really enjoyed the museum. I didn't know New Haven was so full of rich history. I thought their Amistad exhibit was quite interesting. I was disappointed the gift shop wasn't open when we went on a Saturday afternoon as I collect magnets from my travels.
  • Yes, the museum charges an entrance fee- it is not affiliated with Yale. Yes, they have a great collection of New Haven history. I highly recommend to enhance your visit with a guided tour.
