The Hurlbert Dunham House in Wethersfield is among the places taking part in Connecticut Open House Day.

This Saturday, you have no excuse to say there's nothing to do in Connecticut. That's because it's the state's Open House Day for residents and visitors to explore the state -- from the smallest of historical sites to the largest of museums. This hour, we preview just a sliver of what is out there. What little gems exist where you live?

We hear from two state cultural enthusiasts, and check in with three of the places taking part in Open House Day, including the Custom House Maritime Museum in New London, Bullet Hill School in Southbury, and General David Humphreys House in Ansonia.
