Colchester History Museum
The Colchester History Museum, while housed in the former Reverend Ballard home, is not a traditional “historic house” museum. Rather, it is a museum that happens to be housed in a historic house building; the museum features unique exhibits about people and institutions associated with the town of Colchester.
Admission to the museum is free, although donations are welcome. The museum is open from 11 am – 2 pm every Saturday from April through December, except for holiday weekends. Holiday weekends include: Easter (when it falls in April), Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving. A tour of the museum may also be arranged by appointment by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Museum is located at 24 Linwood Avenue in Colchester, Connecticut and shares a free parking lot with Cragin Memorial Library.
