Six Things To Do With Kids in Connecticut

The Constitution State has much to offer, and features plenty of kid-friendly activities throughout Connecticut to the many attractions in Hartford.

Here are six items to help narrow down your itinerary:


1. Check out the KidSpace Gallery or catch a 3D movie in the Hoffman Science Theater at the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford.

2. Be sure to see Wadsworth Atheneum – the castle-like art museum where kids 12 and under get in free. Don’t miss the annual Hartford Youth Art Renaissance happening in the spring.

3. Board real vessels at the Mystic Seaport: the Museum of America and the Sea in Mystic near Groton – and be sure to attend the Mystic Seaport Sea Music Festival in June.

4. Enjoy a family ski trip to the Mount Southington Ski Area in Plantsville near Berlin, where you can take beginners to the Jerry Donovan Alpine Training Center.

5. Or try snow tubing at the Woodbury Ski Area north of Bethel.

6. Don’t miss the Torosaurus at the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale University in New Haven.
