Connecticut’s first public library was established in Durham in 1733. Important library collections are maintained at the Yale University Library, the Connecticut State Library in Hartford, and the libraries of Trinity College, Wesleyan University, and the University of Connecticut.

The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art


The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, in Hartford, is considered one of the finest art museums in the United States. Other art museums in Connecticut are the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, in New London; the Slater Museum, at the Norwich Free Academy in Norwich; the Yale University Art Gallery, in New Haven; and the New Britain Museum of American Art, in New Britain. The Hill-Stead Museum, in Farmington, has a major art collection, and there are special historical art collections in Hartford, Waterbury, and many other cities.

Among the other outstanding museums in Connecticut are Yale’s Peabody Museum of Natural History and the Yale Center for British Art. The Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, in Mashantucket, includes innovative interpretive displays and re-creations that depict the cultural heritage of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.

Hartford, New Haven, and other cities maintain symphony orchestras, and there are choral groups in many cities. The school of music at Yale University is a leader in American musical education.

There is a great interest in the theater in Connecticut. The Goodspeed Opera House, in East Haddam, puts on several productions a year.

Austin Arts Center


Austin Arts Center at Trinity College features plays and musicals annually. The Long Wharf Theatre and the Yale Repertory Theatre, both in New Haven, are nationally known. Some 3,000 productions have had their world or American premieres at the Shubert Theater in New Haven, also known as the Shubert Performing Arts Center. Performances such as South Pacific, Oklahoma, and A Streetcar Named Desire opened at the Shubert before being staged for Broadway audiences. The theater continues to be a center for the region’s cultural life, hosting first-run Broadway shows, opera, dance, family entertainment, and cabaret attractions.
