The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History is an important part of the University's broad educational vision--a vision focused not only on passing knowledge to future generations, but on applying this knowledge to solve problems and improve the quality of people's lives. The Museum offers a unique venue to share UConn's world-class scholarship directly with students and the broader general public. We strive to give people of all ages new types of learning experiences and interpret the scholarship generated here on campus in ways that make it relevant and useful to their own lives.
