Thank you for visiting. Our exhibit, "World War I: Beyond the Front Lines," runs through December 2018. There are no plans to add WWII content to that show.

Hidden gem in New Haven! Easy to get to -- can park in their garage, which is especially great on a rainy or cold day. The exhibits are interesting, and it's a good way to get everyone up and out.
