This free museum with easy access and free parking is a hidden gem in the New Haven museum scene. The exhibits grab your attention but not too much of your time. Well worth return visdits.

What a great find of things to do in New Haven. Free admission and free parking. Knowledgeable staff. The exhibit was phenomenal. The exhibit included uniforms which you can try on. A real bunker made inside the museum. My 9 year old grandson thoroughly enjoyed it as did I. The museum is a must see for anyone coming to New Haven.

Thank you, and your grandson, for visiting. For most, World War I is recent enough to be relevant, but not to remember. The exhibit helps give perspective to its significance as the first international conflict in modern history. Please visit again … and invite others!

Free entrance and free parking underneath the building close to downtown New Haven, wonderful, changing exhibits with a religious bent, nice galleries, and a terrific gift shop - everything a small, special interest museum should be! A great way to while away an hour or so.

Thank you for visiting! The Knights of Columbus was founded in New Haven 135 years ago and has been headquartered in the Elm City ever since. Its history is told here but the museum's rotating exhibitions are very popular. Please visit again after the World War I exhibit opens April 6.

This is truly one of the best exhibits I've been to of Nativity scenes from around the world. Each one was absolutely beautiful and ornate. It's incredible that this museum is completely free - including the parking!

Thank you for visiting and sharing your experience. There are featured nativity scenes on display from Germany, as well as crèches from various countries around the world that are a part of the museum's collection. The show continues to Jan. 29, so please invite others to visit -- or come again yourself!
