  • Lots to see and read. Some kid experiments and things to play with. Also some dinosaur and fossil stuff that my 7 year old loved. I would've given it 5 stars, but not as kid friendly as possible. Beautiful butterfly exhibit.
  • At first I thought $9 for a small town museum was a bit expensive. Boy was I wrong. The museum is small but it's world class. They have managed to acquire priceless amazing exhibits from all over the world. Part science, part history, part archeology, part nature this museum has it all with a small town friendly feel.
  • The Fairbanks Museum is home to a fine collection of natural history, as well as the state's only planetarium. There is is always something new to see and the building itself is amazing.
  • This is the #1 Natural History museum in Vermont. Everyone is dedicated to what they do, the displays are fantastic, and the planetarium show is well worth the extra few dollars. Great for kids and adults alike.
  • My grandchildren and children have always loved it here.
