Such a wonderful place. Beautiful property with walking trails, animals, and informative history. We opted out of the guided tour and went at our own pace. The lady working was very helpful. Definitely worth a visit and kid friendly. Go in May or after the new exhibit is put up. It's a nonprofit preserving CT history in a great location.

About Connecticut Valley Tobacco Museum

Established in 1987 with the help of a trust fund set up by John E. Luddy, The Connecticut Valley Tobacco Historical Society has one goal in mind: to preserve the historical evidence of the cigar tobacco agriculture. The Connecticut Valley Tobacco Museum (1988) serves this purpose by exhibiting their collection of farming equipment and documents as well as encouraging those who experienced working at tobacco farms in the Connecticut River Valley to share their own memories. It features two buildings: the renovated Tobacco Shed with an audio tour exhibit, and the John E. Luddy Archives Building with archival materials and artefacts on display. The two strains of tobacco grown here are Connecticut Shade and Broadleaf.

  • Eye Catcher: side flaps built into the drying shed that allowed air to breeze in and are still in working condition

  • Permanent Mainstay: Section focused on tobacco farm tenting which displays the process with models of tobacco fields and sheds

  • Don't Miss: Francis M. Lutwinas Memorial Book Collection, which displays books about tobacco

  • The Building: The main part of the museum is located in a bright red, wooden curing shed, which was remodeled to showcase the collected equipment.
