Thanks to a grant from The Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, all residents of New London County receive free admission to the Museum on second Sundays this summer – June 14, July 12, August 9, and September 13.
Visitors to Summer Second Sundays will enjoy, All the Sea Knows: Marine Art from the Museum of the City of New York, an exhibition of that highlights the Museum of the City of New York’s renowned marine art collection.
