  • A fair collection of artifacts used to describe Vermont's history. During the summer, the museum hosts free outdoor live music on Thursdays. Check museum website for exact schedule.
  • Vermont has a very rich history, this museum send to miss the boat on most of it. The video display hangs and freezes and the gift shop does not bring it's A game. The short video of Leahy being interviewed and the original printing press are two highlights.
  • I'll be honest: it'd be interesting to a history buff or a serious student of Vermont miscellanea, but I wouldn't take a group of schoolkids there, let alone kids who've been riding around in the back of the car on a vacation.
  • Good exhibit that I maybe visited a little too fast. Pricing is decent might worth visiting when in town.
  • Good little museum on the history of Vermont and it's evolution over the years. Expect to spend an hour and a half here
