Located on the waterfront in historic Essex, the Connecticut River Museum is the perfect place to explore the heritage and experience the wonders of New England’s Great River. If you are drawn to the Connecticut River by the beauty of its unspoiled marshlands, the Museum offers an exceptional vantage point in any season. From its docks you can see bald eagles, migratory birds, and a wide variety of waterfowl. Recognized as one of The Last Great Places in the Northern Hemisphere by the Nature Conservancy, the tidal wetlands that surround the Connecticut River Museum are an environmental treasure worth the trip from anywhere. If you are intrigued by the rich history of the River and its peoples, there is no better starting point than the Museum’s galleries. Designed to appeal to children as well as adults, the family-friendly exhibits are filled with art and artifacts that link the River’s stories to our lives today. From Dutch explorers to British raiders, from native American canoes to the first American submarine, there is something here to capture every visitor’s interest. #Connecticut_River #education #fun #museum #shipping #steamboat_dock
