  • My wife and I spent two hours here and were really impressed with the exhibits, the detailed information that was presented, and the staff. Spend a few bucks and squeeze some more information into your melon.
  • Delightful, professionally prepared, family friendly museum. Inexpensive admission. Some interactive, child friendly displays. If you are a tourist- highly recommended. Handicapped access! If membership was less expensive, I would join as an out of state supporter. Do not miss this museum & Montpelier.
  • Building was beautiful inside. Alot to see.
  • What a fine way to learn the history of this great state. The museum is a a charming and complete experience.
  • While educational, it lacks the crafted stories coupled with relevant artifacts that make a good museum great. Instead, it has questionably historic items tangentially related to each other and their accompanying fun-facts. Even their placards raise concerns of their authenticity in multiple locations! However, it's remarkably balenced in it's retellings. The stories on display here call into question the good and bad of Vermont's history. The surprising nuggets of info here make it a worthwhile visit to a history interested tourist. (Make sure to read some of the notes left in the telegram exhibit. Schools come by often and have their kids write adorable letters to their future ancestors!)
