The Connecticut Antique Machinery Association (CAMA) is a non-profit museum dedicated to the preservation, restoration and demonstration of antique machinery from our rich industrial and agricultural past. CAMA's central theme revolves around machinery that made America great, Our 8-acre museum campus is located in Kent, CT 06757. CAMA is an all-volunteer organization. For details see our Website www.camamuseum.org

Our main focus is to educate the general public as to early industrial and agricultural methods. Our museum currently has nine main areas of focus with exhibits relating to each area. CAMA is a living museum meaning that most of our exhibits are operable. See our Calendar of Events to find out when live demonstrations are available.

Hall of Connecticut Geology and Paleontology:
The new wing of the Connecticut Museum of Mining and Mineral Science. Called the Hall of Connecticut Geology and Paleontology, The exhibits delve into the creation of the land we call Connecticut, and all the upheavals that created the geology we see in the State today. Exhibits also look into the paleontology of Connecticut with exhibits that chronicle the creatures that once lived where you are walking today.
