The New Haven Museum is located in downtown New Haven at 114 Whitney Avenue. The Museum was founded in 1862 as the New Haven Colony History Society by a group of leading New Haven citizens who were determined to preserve the history and traditions of the Greater New Haven region. Today, the New Haven Museum continues this tradition of preservation with a collection that includes folk, decorative and fine arts, an extensive photographic archive, and a unique manuscript collection.
