Stuffed animals as in children's toys and silk flowers everywhere. Admission is $5 per person. It was not very informative, more a store than a "museum".

I'll confess that I wasn't unduly eager to pay the ordinary admissions price and tour this facility. But it's another occasion where my limited expectations were exceeded. Upon entering their museum area, we were greeted by an animatronic old-timer on a ladder who regaled us with humorous couplets about farming back in the day. Then we took a good hour... More

The museum was interesting, we learned a lot about the process and grades of maple syrup. I enjoyed seeing the antique sugars molds. The gift shop had a great selection and tasting area too.

I saw this place while searching for houses I was interested in buying in Vermont. It looks small from the outside but it shows everything about how Maple Syrup is made in Vermont. I am not sure if this is the only Maple Syrup Museum in Vermont or all of New England, I doubt that it is but I don't... More

Very informative about the history of Maple Syrup. If you visit in November wear your jacket, gloves and hat they don't heat the exhibit.

A typical visit here consists of an informative, thorough, and fairly well done self-guided tour of the maple-syrup-making process and industry, an informative historical video, and a visit to the moderately sized but impressive gift shop. The people here are friendly and obviously lovingly devoted to the New England (especially Vermont) maple business, making it easy to spend time and... More

Attracted by the colourful and magnificent display of pumpkins, flowers and scarecrows we turned around and went back to take pictures. Wary of paying to go into a museum in a shop, we were pleasantly surprised. You get a comprehensive tour through the history of maple syrup harvesting in Vermont and a complete guide to the process, including an informative... More

Not a curated museum, but well done nonetheless. Was delighted to find such a wide assortment of maple products for gifts, at the best prices we saw during our trip.

The store sells great Vermont maple (and other) products at reasonable prices. The staff was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The museum tells the maple sugaring story. If I in the area again I’ll stop but I won’t go out of my way.

We stopped by to look around the store. We didn't go into the museum as it costs and we weren't that interested however, there is a room where you can sample a lot of produce. In fact some people were almost using this as lunch. Its a great place to look at local produce.
