Dinosaur State Park and Museum off exit 23 on I-91 is well worth the trip. The main deal here is a dinosaur track way which shows you and your kids that there were former residents to Connecticut many millions of years ago it the Triasic. This is a place to take your kids. Besides all the inside stuff, there are hiking trails and the kids can also make plaster casts from REAL dino tracks. Take your kids, they will love it.
