Like stumbling upon this at the Norwich Regional High School was an unbelievable find. Who would have thought this Museum would end up in a little town. You've got to see it to believe it.

Simply amazing asset for a public school. Remembering back to the days when you would only have some displays of students work in the halls, well this place has that beat. Yes, they still have all the usual public school motifs, but a great addition...More
