    Hello,

    Great idea posting about this!

    I hope you’ll write about both the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum AND the New Haven Museum! I didn’t see either, but I was going quickly through the list…

  2. Terri Saulter says:

    Connecticut Radio Museum in Windsor – awesome place. I didn’t see it on the list.

  3. Susan Orred says:

    CT Historical Society–bring the guys and check out the ‘Making Connecticut’ exhibit.
