Trash Museum of Connecticut

There is the Trash Museum which is constructed completely of recycled trash. They even play a game of "Where's Waldo" but it's "Where's the Rat" and the kids try to find a rubber rat among the rubbish.

Popular with school groups, it features a Temple of Trash and a mural that depicts the history of trash management from prehistoric times to today. A highlight of museum is the viewing platform, where visitors can watch a recycling plant in action.
