The house also plans to host a popular West Hartford Hauntings tour in October, which is outdoors and suitable for social gatherings, but the website has all the details.

Take an afternoon, check in at a nearby coffee shop or shop in downtown Fairfield, or stop at the Connecticut Museum of Natural History in Hartford.

Noah Webster House generates most of its revenue from school programs and events, Matos said, and the museum is working on virtual excursions and expanding its online offerings.

I have also heard from colleagues in other museums that they cannot make in-person programmes and are losing money quickly. Some Connecticut museums have reopened their outdoor facilities, but the Mark Twain House is costing its employees their jobs. Those who still work at the museum have gone on the run and had to take a 20% pay cut.
The gardens and grounds are open and enjoy free admission during the day, but only on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm and from 10 am to 5 pm.

A visit to the Husky Heritage and Sports Museum will make every UConn fan happy, but much of the zoo's habitat and attractions are located inside the museum, while visitors have only access to the outdoor facilities. The museum grounds are planted with flowering trees, which offer visitors an endless play of colours from spring to autumn. The museum is both a museum and an institution that sheds light on the role of women in the history of the state.
