Fodor's Review

In an 1878 steamboat warehouse, this museum tells the story of the Connecticut River through maritime artifacts, interactive displays, and ship models. The riverfront museum even has a full-size working reproduction of the world's first submarine, the American Turtle; the original was built by David Bushnell in 1775 as a "secret weapon" to win the Revolutionary War.
