Countdown to Noon!

Join the Museum and East Lyme Parks & Recreation for southeastern Connecticut’s premier New Year’s event for children and families!

Ring in the New Year a little early with a 250+ balloon drop at noon!

Explore the constellations with STARLAB. Build, create, imagine at the Creation Station; enjoy some hands-on New Year’s arts & crafts; watch fun science demonstrations; purchase a bite from our visiting food truck and more! The Rotary Club will be on hand with an Amber Alert Safe Child station. Even our Museum critters will be there to get in on the celebration. And you can savor the event for years to come with a photo from our photo booth.
