According to CT Visit, the Trail was launched in 1995 as the Connecticut Impressionist Art Trail, celebrating Connecticut's ten museums and historic sites that highlighted American Impressionism. In 2005, the member museums voted to expand its membership beyond Impressionism to include even more quality museums and historic sites, including European masterpieces, American Impressionism, ancient art and contemporary culture. This strategic initiative was accomplished in order to reach a broader audience and showcase the diversity of collections within the state.
