No shows on while we were there, but visited the museum / permanent exhibition. Many photographs of Katherine and her life. No charge for entry, but donate if you want. Worth a visit while in Old Saybrook.

The Kate is a wonderful, intimate venue offering a wide variety of entertainment in Old Saybrook. There is almost always something happening at The Kate. We have enjoyed a number of excellent tribute bands and plays and look forward to returning often.

The Kate is a great venue that attracts well known music acts that don't have the ability to fill larger auditoriums or arenas. Comfortable seating and personable staff. Ticket prices are very reasonably priced and don't be surprised to see some nationally recognized acts performing...More
