A small museum that has well laid out displays. Displays are changed out on a regular basis. The Sullivan Museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Museum which allows for a wider selection of items and information to be viewed.

Lots of great paraphenalia and artifacts from different time periods, to include stories and pictures from Norwich grads and other members of the Armed Services. Take about 30-40 minutes to walk all the way through, but it's worth it. Lots of great and interesting information!
