Amazing exhibits tucked into compact space

We visited here on a Thursday afternoon with four generations. This is an extremely well designed and expansive children's activity center/animal refuge.

We visit this museum a few times a year and find it a joy. Though the permanent collection is excellent given the museum's small size, what pulls us in is the variety of exhibits that run throughout the year. A true local gem for those of us who live in central Ct.
