For the past 20 years the New Britain Industrial Museum has been increasing pride in the community and inspiring the next generation on the second floor of CCSU’s ITBD building, located in downtown New Britain. Beginning July 1, 2015 the Museum’s address will still be 185 Main Street, but the location will be off the lobby on the first floor.
In order to make this move, there will be no public hours from May 17th through June 30. The last day the full collection will be available to the public will be Saturday May 16, in our current location on the second floor, and the next time the collection will be available to the public will be on July 1 when the museum opens on the first floor. This 6 week period will allow time to install in the new space and pack and store the remaining collection. The museum’s facebook page will have up to the minute information on the move and the museum’s progress.
Starting the 21st year of operation in a new location provides an opportunity to present the story of New Britain and it’s accomplishments in a new, fresh way. We invite you to enjoy the full collection before Saturday May 16, and to visit us again in the new space after July 1.
