Q: I am a Connecticut resident, and I am also a KidsPlay Member. Can you extend my membership for 2 months since CT admission is free this summer?

A: Yes! We are extending all memberships by 2 months. For example, if you have a Summer Membership that expires on Sept. 6, your new expiration date will be Nov. 6, 2021. If you have a Family Membership that expires on Oct. 4, it will be extended to Dec. 4, 2021. The same applies to all membership types. You do not need to call us unless you have questions about your membership.

Q: Hi! I’m planning a field trip for my day camp, do camp groups qualify for the free admission?

A: CT Summer at the Museum is for Museum Admission and does not apply to group sales such as field trips or birthday parties.
