MEMBERS AND FRIENDS OF THE MUSEUM:
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are currently working on several projects. We receive no funding from the State of Connecticut or any other government agency, and rely on four sources for funding: direct admission and/or event ticket sales, merchandise sales in the Gift Shop, grants, and donations. It is in the latter area where we need your help. Please CLICK HERE for more information on projects currently underway at the Museum that need additional funding.
