You Can Walk Through A Life-Sized Sperm Whale At This Kid-Friendly Museum In Connecticut
We are lucky enough to have some great children’s museums in Connecticut. One of our favorites is the simply-named The Children’s Museum in West Hartford. This place started off more than 100 years ago as a one-room display in Elizabeth Park and has grown substantially over the years. It’s the fifth-oldest children’s museum in the nature and has plenty to offer visitors, including live animals, a planetarium, and even a life-sized sperm whale you can walk inside!
Please note that The Children’s Museum is preparing to move to a different location in late 2022. The eventual home will be just a few blocks away from the current space, but a temporary museum about 70% of the size of the original will be set up in a nearby synagogue.
For more information, check out The Children’s Museum website.
