Connecticut Open House

If there are museums around Connecticut that you have always wanted to visit, here is your chance to do it for free or at a discounted price. 

The Connecticut Office of Tourism is sponsoring the 13th annual Connecticut Open House Day on Saturday, June 10th.  The one-day statewide event is designed to showcase Connecticut’s diverse world of history, art, and tourism.  It is a terrific way for residents to discover or rediscover all that is wonderful in our state.  

Once Connecticut residents learn about the treasures in their own backyard, they will share their newly gained love and excitement with visiting family and friends.
