A Visit to the Tort Museum

Did you know there is a tort museum? Located in Winsted, Connecticut, the American Museum of Tort Law has several galleries which educate about precedent-setting cases, including a gallery which focuses on dangerous toys, a product liability issue.

You don’t have to travel to New England to see the exhibits. The website offers several options for viewing the museum online.

The Museum’s Founding
Ralph Nader founded the museum in 2017. Nader first became famous for his ground-breaking expose of manufacturers’ indifference to automobile defects, Unsafe at any Speed.

Winsted is Nader’s home town. It is also about 25 miles northwest of Hartford, Connecticut, which bills itself as the insurance capital of the world.
