Interesting for fishers - nice gift shop and library for others. They were remodeling while I was there but enjoyable. Many old fly rod, reel, line, fle examples. Cost $5; library & gift shop free.

As an Orvis fly fishing junkie I love to go to the "fatherland" when ever possible. Orvis folks recommended the museum and I can honestly say I am so glad they did. I thought I know a fair amount about fly fishing and it's beginnings but to see so much more about the history was amazing. Great price, lots ot... More

If you would like to see Stan Bogdan's reels or the prototype of Orvis CFO this is the place for you. I liked it a lot - wish the hours were more accommodating.

We would of loved to see this since my husband is a long time fly fisherman and heard wonderful things about it but the problem is we could not see it since only open Tues-Sat from 10-4. My husband had a guided fly fishing trip that day and we thought it would be open on Sunday but we were wrong.... More

We found this place quite by surprise while walking through Manchester. I care little about fishing but like museums and this was a gem. It is worth seeing for the architecture and beautiful displays. Fun little gift shop too.
