The popular state program Connecticut Summer at the Museum has returned for summer 2023, enabling Connecticut children to receive free admission at more than 120 museums and attractions across the state during the summer months.
Thanks to funding from President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, children 18 and younger plus one accompanying adult can visit Connecticut museums and attractions for free through September 4. Governor Lamont established the program in 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic as a way of providing children with engaging summer enrichment and learning experiences.
Participating locations include art and children’s museums, historical sites, zoos, aquariums, arboretums, science centers, and more.
The program is only open to children and adults who are Connecticut residents, (proof of residency may be required). Certain restrictions may apply, and capacity may be limited. Connecticut residents should check each museum’s website to learn of any restrictions before visiting.
