Located in the historic Connecticut State Library and Supreme Court Building, the Museum of Connecticut History documents the political, cultural, technological, and urban history of the Nutmeg State. On the site, visitors will find six primary sections, including "Museum Exhibits", "Colt Collection", and "About the Museum". The "Colt Collection" section provides information about the famous gun manufacturer, which made weapons in Hartford for well over a century. In the "Museum Exhibits" area, visitors can preview collections that tell the story of the state's governors and the Freedom Trail quilts. Also, the "Education Services" area features helpful educational materials for educators and students, including lesson plans and thoughtful activities.
