About the Connecticut Art Trail

The Connecticut Art Trail is a nationally recognized partnership between eighteen world-class museums and historic sites, created to promote Connecticut’s rich cultural assets as part of a travel experience.

The Trail was launched in 1995 as the Connecticut Impressionist Art Trail, celebrating Connecticut’s ten museums and historic sites that highlighted American Impressionism. In 2005, the member museums voted to expand its membership beyond Impressionism to include even more quality museums and historic sites, increasing the membership to nineteen today. This strategic initiative was accomplished in order to reach a broader audience and showcase the diversity of collections within the state. The Connecticut Art Trail also offers the Art Pass, granting visitors one-day access to each museum along the trail for a small fee. More information about the Art Trail can be found online at www.ctarttrail.org and on facebook.com/CTArtTrail.
