Fodor's Review

A life-size walk-through replica of a 60-foot sperm whale greets patrons at this museum. Located in West Hartford, the museum also has a wildlife sanctuary and real-life images of outer space beamed in from NASA, as well as an exhibit that encourages would-be engineers to build a city and solve for real-world problems like natural disasters and traffic.
