Attractions near the Hartford Marriott Downtown
Mark Twain’s legacy on show
World-famous author Mark Twain wrote his most significant works during the years he spent in his Hartford home, from 1874 to 1891. Now listed as a National Historic Landmark, the house has been lovingly restored to its former glory.
Take a tour and see where Twain dreamt up the mischievous adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and delve even further into the history books with education programs and activities should you wish. Be sure to check out the Aetna Gallery, which houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to Twain’s life and work. Afterwards, sit back and soak up the atmosphere at the on-site café.
Wow the kids with science
Whoever said kids don’t learn anything on holidays never stayed at a hotel located right next door to the Connecticut Science Centre, which houses 150 hands-on exhibits, a 3D digital theatre, interactive science labs, and daily events and programs.
Show the kids the craters of the moon up close in the Exploring Space exhibit, introduce them to the Energy City exhibit’s wind turbines, solar panels and fuel cells, and watch their joy as they discover the power of wind, magnets and robotics at the Forces in Motion exhibit. Share in the excitement of a 3D movie such as Flight of the Butterflies and Hidden Universe, and take in a family-friendly stage show in the theatre.
