Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism and Museums
The Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism promotes the arts, film, historic preservation, museums, and tourism in Connecticut. The commission operates four museums—the Henry Whitfield State Museum, the Prudence Crandall Museum, the New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine, and the Sloane-Stanley Museum. The Henry Whitfield State Museum, Prudence Crandall Museum, and New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine are listed separately in this database. The Sloan-Stanley Museum presents U.S. craftsmanship heritage and the local iron industry. Displays include hand tools, the studio of artist Eric Sloane (1905-1985), a replica circa 1800 cabin, and the remains of a granite blast furnace located on site.
The Sloane-Stanley Museum offers exhibits.
