For $5 you get into this attraction and the Litchfield Historical Society Museum. I felt the Museum was better Tapping Reeve was okay but I would have found the Women's School which had apparently been next door more exciting and informative than a law school.

Thank you for your review! We also wish that you could visit the Litchfield Female Academy building, but that building was taken down a very long time ago. For more information on the Female Academy, contact us!
