We are excited to participate in the CT Summer at the Museum Initiative thanks to the support of Connecticut Humanities and the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the federal ARPA.

From July 1st - September 5th, the Eli Whitney Museum & Workshop is offering free walk-in projects to children under 18! Plan your visit to the museum on the weekend. We are open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Please note that we are closed to visitors on weekdays.

No appointment or reservation necessary.

When you visit us on a weekend day, an apprentice will work with your child as they build a project and begin to experiment. Sessions last from 20 minutes to an hour. After building your project, you can enjoy our water lab just outside the main museum building. Float your boats in the water tables, experiment with water flowing from the mill river, or just cool off and play!

Don't be discouraged by a rainy day. We have our marble wall inside and a wide variety of projects to choose from (some highlighted below).

Along with our usual variety of projects, we will be highlighting boats! To start off your summer, come by and build a Cargo Ship, Ferry Boat, or Submarine.
