From July 1 to September 6, Connecticut children age 18 and under, plus one accompanying adult per group, can visit participating museums free of charge through the Connecticut Summer at the Museum program.
*Additional adult admission is $8 per person. Does not include school, organization or child care groups, field trips, birthday parties or special events.
To help ensure a wonderful visitor experience, the Museum has a daily limited amount of free tickets available through this program. If the date you wish to visit isn’t available on the calendar above that means we are currently out of free CT Summer at the Museum tickets for that day. Please note: We only open tickets two weeks at a time.
Absolutely, online ticketing is for the CT Summer at the Museum tickets ONLY. If you are:
paid tickets are still available to purchase in-person at our Admissions Desk. No online reservation required.
The CT Summer at the Museum program only allows for one (1) free adult ticket per family/group. Any additional adults in the group must pay regular admission. Please note: This program is geared towards families exploring together, not large camp groups.
No. Families/groups wishing to claim free CT Summer at the Museum tickets must do so via our online reservation system.
Unfortunately, no. We love that people wish to visit us using this new program, but tickets are limited because our Museum is fun-sized and we want each and every one of our Museum visitors to have a wonderful and engaging learning experience.
Connecticut Summer at the Museum is made possible through an investment from the federal COVID-19 recovery funding Connecticut is receiving from the American Rescue Plan Act. The program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts in partnership with Connecticut Humanities.
