Free Admission for CT Kids at Hill-Stead extended through the end of the year!

From July 1 to December 31, Connecticut children ages 18 and younger, plus one accompanying adult, can visit Hill-Stead Museum for free as part of the Connecticut Summer at the Museum program.*

No advance registration is required. Please check in at the Museum Shop when you arrive.

*Does not apply to ticketed events such as From the Porch, Dinner on the Hill, Summer on the Hill, or the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival.


CT Summer at the Museum is part of Governor Lamont’s larger plan to use recovery funds to provide students and families with engaging summer enrichment and learning experiences in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Connecticut children age 18 and under plus one accompanying Connecticut resident adult can visit participating museums free of charge through the Connecticut Summer at the Museum program.

  • This program is geared towards families exploring together, not large camp groups.
  • The children and the accompanying adult must reside in Connecticut.
  • Proof of residency may be required (i.e. CT driver’s license or ID card) by a participating museum.
  • Please make sure you check each museum for online advance ticketing and reservations, as they may be required.
  • Participating museums have discretion to administer the CT Summer at the Museum program to the best of their ability and according to their needs.  Certain restrictions may apply and capacity may be limited.  (i.e. limit to one adult per household, block-out dates, exclusions for special events, etc.)  Be sure to check with each museum to learn of any restrictions before visiting.
