Simsbury Historical Society

The Museum Store is now open with our usual schedule: Thursday through Saturday from noon to 4:00 PM. Saturday tours and research are by appointment.  For an appointment, email info@simsburyhistory.org.

It’s time to explore!

From July 1 to September 6, Connecticut children age 18 and under plus one accompanying adult can visit the Simsbury Historical Society free of charge through the Connecticut Summer at the Museum program.

The program is part of Governor Lamont’s larger plan to use recovery funds to provide students and families with engaging summer enrichment and learning experiences in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Connecticut Summer at the Museum is made possible through an investment from the federal COVID-19 recovery funding Connecticut is receiving from the American Rescue Plan Act. The program is administered by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts in partnership with Connecticut Humanities.
