Connecticut Historical Society - Veeder House, 3 Women Photographers, & Museum

I've set up a tour of the Ct. Historical Society, a very interesting museum of exhibits and artifacts of our state history. 

1. 11 AM - Tour of featured exhibit of Through a Different Lens: Three Connecticut Women Photographers with the curator. 
2. 12 Noon - Behind the scenes tour of the Veeder Living Room, built in 1928.
3. 1 PM - We will be able to shoot the exhibits in the museum. Featured are old tavern signs, manufacturing artifacts. and the exhibit Making Connecticut.
Also, we can shoot the grounds outdoors.

Cost: $6.00/person.
We will be able to shoot inside and out.

More info: www.chs.org

NOTE: We are limited to 20 guests of the museum. We will start wait listing when we have 20 guests.

If you need to cancel, please take a moment and let us know so we can have any additional members accommodated.

This is due to the size of the group in some of the smaller rooms and we hope to make this comfortable for everyone.

Guests will be permitted on a space available basis.

Members have a highest priority.

    The exhibit of the three women photographers with guided tour alone was worth the visit--I would have never known about it.
