Tour The Kate

The building has just turned 99 and like good wine, it has improved with age. Trained docents will fill you in on its rich history as they guide you through Old Saybrook’s crown jewel. Please call 860-510-0473 to schedule your tour.


The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center features a small museum dedicated to Katharine Hepburn, citizen of Connecticut and Old Saybrook. The world shared the talent of Ms. Hepburn, but it was the people of Old Saybrook who knew her not as international star, but neighbor. That is what makes the Center special and it is this connection the museum emphasizes with memorabilia and reminiscences about Kate, our neighbor and friend.

The museum is adjacent to the Center’s main lobby and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4pm, and on performance days one hour prior to the show.

To make arrangements to visit the museum on other occasions, contact Michael Gatta or Brett Elliott at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.
