NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Looking for family activities this weekend? We have eight ideas for you, including some great outdoor options.

Get a passport and explore the Connecticut Art Trail, made up of 22 museums and historic sites throughout the state, celebrating creativity.

Take the family to Mummies of the World: The Exhibition, a new exhibit at the Connecticut Science Center, a large collection of artifacts.

The kids will love to see Disney on Ice Presents Mickey’s Search Party, with a variety of shows throughout the weekend at the XL Center, starring Elsa and Moana!

And, you can dust-off the skates, too! Ice skating is back at Foxwoods. Reserve an igloo on the beautiful winter patio where food and drinks are served.

Take a hike on the Metacomet Trail. A 4-mile loop includes views of the Farmington River, along with vistas of Granby and Simsbury.
