This is an entertaining and educational museum. There is A LOT that goes into making that little bottle of syrup! From the start, this museum begins with a good mixture of education and entertainment. A speaking manikin introduces the audience to the 'art' of making syrup. The displays are in chronological order from the first Indian woman's innocent discovery to... More

My wife and I decided to stay local on our anniversary. We had a perfect fall day pn October 12. We have lived down the road in Rutland forever but never checked out the maple museum before. It's a very nice place, the owners and staff are charming. The museum tour has a lot of interesting exhibits. The gift shop... More

Browse, shop then go across the street to JR's for lunch! It really shows you why Vermont is a great place to live and visit.

Step back into history and learn how maple syrup was first discovered and how it has evolved over the years. Great for history buffs or for small children who have an interest. $5 admission covers a short film and tastings at the end.

I am lucky enough to live in the same town as this cool museum. Learn how maple syrup is made in the interactive museum, taste all the different grades of syrup (along with other edibles) and shop the large and very affordable gift shop for unique, locally made gifts. I shop here on a regular basis for gifts--such as to... More

This museum is very interesting to walk through. The day we were there, there wasn't a charge to go through as it was a state wide art stop weekend. They have a nice gift shop, and samplings of the different grades of maple syrup. I would recommend a stop here if you are in the area.

Our Tour included this Maple Museum. It is very educational in that they give a thorough background of the history of Maple Syrup making to Modern day making. They have lots of historical artifacts that add to the understanding of the industry of syrup making. The Syrup 'tasting' room is helpful in understanding the 'differences' in the types of Maple...

Having seen multiple presentations of how maple syrup is made, we passed on the museum tour, especially since there was a fee. The store has a very wide assortment of maple related products. We had no problem stocking up on lots of goodies to bring home from our road trip! Take a photo op with the large maple syrup jug... More

It was a homeade museum, but they took care to obtain alot of antique items. Their little freckled faced grandaughter was a cutie and helped with our purchases.

They have all sorts of wonderful maple items and a fun museum! They are very friendly and just put in a new pond to relax by.
