The White Memorial Conservation Center’s Nature Museum provides a glimpse into the natural diversity found throughout White Memorial Foundation’s 4,000-acre wildlife sanctuary. This engaging facility features hand-painted and photographic murals, dioramas, a Children’s Corner, live animals, a working honeybee hive, a digital microscope, unique exhibits such as “The Art of Taxidermy,” and a fluorescent rock cave. For a challenge, try this Museum Scavenger Hunt! We also have an Outdoor Scavenger Hunt that can be picked up in the Museum.
The White Memorial Conservation Center offers year-round environmental education and recreation programs for children and adults, utilizing the Nature Museum and surrounding property as teaching arenas.
Inside the Museum building you will also find a Gift Shop offering nature-themed items that will please adults and kids alike. Be sure to check out the “Made in CT” section featuring the work of local artisans. Certain items, such as maps, hats, and badges, can also be purchased online.
