Connecticut’s Founding Fish

The Museum’s latest exhibit Connecticut’s Founding Fish will open to the public March 10th.

Fishing gear, fine art, an Earl Brockway skiff and other items related to Shad will be on display for all interested in learning about this important fish that helped shape our region. Join us in celebrating this important species! Through July 31st.
