Get to know the Museum
The Lyman Allyn will not be holding any adult or field trip docent-led tours this year due to COVID-19. We are working on creating exhibition tour videos for all ages. Please keep checking the website for new information. Schools and organizations interested in participating in outreach programs should contact Sophia Gipstein at email@example.com or 860.443.2545 x 2140.
The Lyman Allyn offers many exhibitions and programs that may be of interest to you and your organization.
