New Britain Youth Museum and Hungerford Nature Center will be temporarily CLOSED until further notice.



Help us build a much needed new home for our animals.  The new Animal Discovery Center will provide students and visitors with a place to connect with nature and wildlife in a variety of ways.  The barn will provide a home for our goats, llamas and cow.  Please help us make this a reality.
