Museums in New Haven, Connecticut

New Haven, Connecticut, is located on New Haven Harbor on the northern shore of Long Island Sound in New Haven County, Connecticut, and is part of the New York metropolitan area. Founded in 1638 by English Puritans, New Haven is the home of Yale University. The university is an integral part of the city’s economy, being New Haven’s biggest employer.

The city served as co-capital of Connecticut from 1701 until 1873, when sole governance was transferred to the more centrally located city of Hartford. New Haven has many well-established theatres, museums, and music venues.
