  • Small, but really well done museum describing Vermont history from the time of early human settlement to the present day. I found the section on colonial and early American history especially interesting, especially given the complicated and often strained relationship that Vermonters have had with New York, New Hampshire, and the Crown. Takes about an hour to go through and it is well worth the time and money.
  • Nice place with a ton of Vermont history. Set up very user friendly to walk through. People were knowledgeable and friendly
  • The folks here are extra nice, answered all questions. Check out local artisans here. Wood turned bowls and ornaments. Free parking and close to downtown.
  • Lots of information. Take at least an hour to visit. The best feature is that it is not self glorifying. Nicely done.
  • Very informative and fun. Loved the little house set up!
