The Slater Museum, Norwich CT

Located on the second floor of the beautiful Slater Memorial building on the campus of Norwich Free Academy, the Slater Museum is truly a hidden gem.  The large collection of cast replicas of classical and Renaissance sculptures are both startling and impressive.  The sheer number of pieces all together in one place is quite a sight.  The building itself is a splendid example of late nineteenth century red brick architecture (Romanesque Revival) with frieze panels in the brick work and a large red owl perched on one of the pediments. The museum gift shop is worth a mention too, selling a nicely eclectic mix of books, ceramics, art pieces and prints. 

Admission for adults is only $3, free with NARM membership
