  • lovely building, inside exhibits mediocre. definitely not kid-friendly. i love museums but i would happily skip this one.
  • Nice exhibits, cool old elevator, quiet atmosphere, helpful staff.
  • This is a quite a gem for New Haven. After you get pizza, the Museum is a must stop when visiting the city.

  • One of the best hidden gems of New Haven. I walked right past it so many times. I have recommended it to teachers friends & tourists. There is so much history and original documents that tell the story of N. H.
