The New England Civil War Museum was established in March of 1994. It is housed in the Memorial Building. The hall is comprised of the Grand Hall, an outer room and a kitchen. This GAR hall is still fully intact with all of its relics (the most identified collection in Connecticut), including prints, paintings, lithographs, photos, and original papers. The museum has a wonderful collection of Civil War items and is an outstanding repository of information relating to the Grand Army.
