We enjoyed are recent visit to Lyman Allyn. The staff was wonderfully helpful. The permanent collection is smallish with a focus on Hudson Valley school and American Impressionist plus several portraits of the great and good of New London. The entire family enjoyed the recent skateboard and manga exhibit. It pushed the question of what is art, and can skateboards be art?

The Lyman Allyn Museum across the the Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT is a real hidden gem. Great collection of historic art works a real feel of classic New York in CT. At just 5 bucks to get in one can spend hours there. For those interested in local history...the portaits of early New Londoners is fantastic!
