Annual Maintenance, Museum CLOSED 9/7-9/23

Since the grand opening of the Museum in July of 2004 the museum has become a statewide tourist attraction with visitors representing over 145 Connecticut towns. The museum has also hosted visitors from states as far as California to nearby Rhode Island. Despite being open for only ten years we have served close to 500,000 visitors.

As we celebrate our 10 year anniversary next month, Imagine Nation is embarking on a massive renovation to refresh, and add new and exciting additions to the museum to make it an even more vibrant learning environment.

 As you visit you will notice that interior renovations are now underway, most notably, the  re-designed water room is the first of many extensive enhancements.  

The museum will be closed September7-23 for annual maintenance, and the completion of these enhancements.  Feel free to contact us at (860) 314-1400 if you have any questions.  We thank you for your patience during this time and  are excited to share with you the new and innovative approach to early learning. 

We hope to see you at the Family Jubilee on Saturday, September 6th from 11am-3pm and the Celebrating A Decade of Imagine Nation Gala on September 20th from 6-11pm
