We only made the effort to walk over to the museums and go inside because it was just over 100 degrees and we were desperate for some air conditioning. I'm so glad we did. Both this museum and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum...More

Downstairs from the hospital this is a large and eclectic mix of exhibits from Chinese Pottery to Silver and Dolls Houses as well as fabrics and furniture. Well worth devoting some time to this as provides some additional information to the Colonial period.

This Museum is co-located with the Public Hospital. There are no crowds here like at the rest of CW, but probably a lot of groups during the school year. A great collection and well worth the visit. Fantastic collection of furniture.
