From colonial to modern times, how did Connecticans tie the knot? Come explore 300-plus years of wedding customs and traditions through CHS’s collection. You’ll go behind the scenes into CHS’s collections storage areas to look at clothing, photographs, and other artifacts that document changes and continuities in wedding celebrations over time.

In this tour, you’ll visit storage and collection areas not normally open to the public, and learn how the CHS preserves the stories of Connecticut.

Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and pre-registration is strongly recommended. (Purchase tickets here).
