  • NWH is a truly excellent museum. Featuring a fascinating history of the Town of West Hartford, the museum also showcases exhibits of general interest to the historically curious. Staff members are congenial, personable and always willing to be of assistance with any and all queries.

  • Great little museum. You can spend as little as 30 minutes or as much as 3 and a half hours or more . Depends on how much you enjoy history. I personally would have enjoyed spending even more time here. The volunteers/employees are very helpful.
