Why it’s important:
The New Children’s Museum has long been a staple in the West Hartford Community. The Museum provides families an outlet for socialization and education. With the New Neighbors Membership, GHAR clients, presumably families who are new to the area, are given an opportunity for immersion into the community culture. With their membership to the museum they will meet and socialize with other families, through which they may pass their own positive experiences with realtors from the Greater Hartford Association of Realtors.
The New Children’s Museum’s mission as a leader in science and nature education is to engage children, their families, and their teachers through hands-on educational programs, activities, exhibits, and community outreach. We strive to encourage discovery, spark a lifelong interest in science and nature, improve science achievement, and develop civic awareness of science and nature. Our dedication to future generations is evident in every one of our staff members, thereby ensuring that, at The New Children’s Museum, science and nature are FUN!
How it works:
One of the two named adults on the membership must be a realtor or client of a realtor associated with the Greater Hartford Association of Realtors.
To purchase a New Neighbors Membership for a client, the realtor must contact the museum. Realtors will receive a package that can then be presented to their clients. . Once presented, the family will have 6 months from the date of purchase to redeem the New Neighbor membership. After 6 months, the $100 value of the gift may be applied toward the museum’s standard membership levels.

Membership may also be purchased by Grandparents, in which case it is understood that the children on the account might not be living in the same household.
