Welcome to Connecticut Landmarks. Founded in 1936 as the Antiquarian & Landmarks Society, we are a state wide network of twelve significant historic properties that span four centuries of New England history. Our museums are starting points – landmarks in every sense – for deeper exploration and greater appreciation of the Connecticut experience. We have something for everyone. From captivating house tours to lovely historic gardens, history celebrations and remarkable collections of art and antiques. Our real-life stories, as told through our collections, make history matter.
The Benton, Connecticut’s state art museum, provides changing exhibitions of art from the 15th-21st centuries, faculty and MFA installations, and traveling exhibitions as well as openings, campus art walks, gallery talks, musical performances, films and special events.
