Join museum members, local dignitaries, and the media as Chuckles makes his annual prediction.

“Chuckles” is keenly aware of his status as Connecticut’s one-and-only official state groundhog.  You may only see him sleeping but that is because he is up all night consulting with meteorologists, examining satellite images and and reading his farmer’s almanac. The museum opens promptly at 6 a.m.  Stay for a bite to eat before heading off to school or work.
