There are hundreds of museums in New England. Everyone knows the famous museums, but there are smaller treasures scattered throughout the region in unexpected places , documenting New England history, artwork, folklore, and life. Museums of New England is a guide to all the New England museums, from artwork to armories to arboretums to living history–where they are, when to go, how to get there, and what to look for.
In addition to descriptions of 600 museums (and contact info for over 1,500 museums in all), the book features driving directions, indexes by state, town, subject, and highway, sidebars on special museum organizations (like the Society for Preservation of new England Antiquities), regional features (like the Walking Weekend or the Connecticut Impressionist Art Museum Trail) memberships, and discount programs.
