Help Us Through This Difficult Time

All proceeds go to The New Britain Youth Museum and Hungerford Nature Center.

The New Britain Youth Museum and Hungerford Nature Center are a children's museum and nature center serving the central region of Connecticut since 1956.  We offer educational programming for both children and adults.  We have a small but mighty staff that make both our sites an educational yet fun experience for thousands of children and adults a year.  Additionally, our nature center is home to some 80 animals entrusted in our care.   As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel all of our classes, special events and close the center to the public.  We rely on these programs to pay our staff and run our facility.  We need your help now!  Please consider a tax deductible donation today to help us make it through these unprecedented times.  Stay safe and thank you for your help.
