Museums, Aquariums, and Other Attractions Open This Winter in CT! - Newtown Moms

Did you ever think you did something and then realize you didn’t have the information you needed? This is what happened to me over the weekend, when I planned to share a list of local museums, aquariums, and other attractions in Connecticut that are open this winter. The list below is something I wanted to create awhile ago, but I guess somehow missed!
