On April 30th, 2021, Governor Ned Lamont announced that he is proposing to launch an initiative that will allow children in Connecticut to visit museums (including historic houses, historic sites, and historical societies) throughout the state free of charge during the upcoming summer months. Under the initiative, all Connecticut children 18 and under plus one accompanying adult can visit any of the state’s participating museums free of charge from July 1 to September 6. The program will be supported by a $15 million investment from the state's federal recovery funds to the participating museums.
CT Humanities and the CT Office of the Arts are partnering to administer the CT Museums–Kids Are Free Summer Grants Program. Join staff from both organizations to learn more about this grant opportunity, find out how to participate, and ask any other questions you may have.
