“Built in 1796, the original seat of the state legislature is now a historical landmark & museum. The old pillory stocks seem a little surreal, make you feel like you're actually travelling back in time. Kids exhibits are wonderful, especially in the activities room, downstairs gallery, CT Kid Governor's office, and museum of oddities. Kids and adults will enjoy a visit here.”
