There is a lot of history in this place! The video was down when I visited so I got a serviceable ~30 min tour. Highlights would be the fantastic Trumbull Revolutionary War paintings on loan from nearby Wadsworth Atheneum, and the Museum of Oddities. Not every day you see a two-headed calf! Spent a pleasant 45 minutes. For kiddies they have a fabulous hands-on exhibit downstairs replete with an antique fire engine and Lego model of the building.
