It's really a store surrounded by signs and displays explaining Vermont maple syrup. It was pretty interesting and informative considering how simple it was. Entrance fee well worth it and I did get a "must do in Vermont" feeling. Shop was also nice with samples of different grades of syrup. Of course now I had to buy them all to... More

The story of maple syrup from when the Indians made it/used it, to Vermonters incremental improvements, to today. Really interesting in that materials in the displays were plentiful and explained well, including audio stops of real Vermonters telling their stories. Including a maple song! We wound our way through several rooms, going through all stages of how it's made. Even... More

Our family group of 8 adults and 5 children ages 6 months through 8 years visited the NE Maple Museum the last week of June. We had a blast! When we arrived, we spent at least 1/2 hour playing on the grounds before we even went inside. There is plenty of space for kids to run around, and lots of... More

This is a tasty and informative place that holds the interest of all age groups. The displays show the progression of maple sap gathering and boiling over time since the native Americans began doing it. The shop is full of various maple (samples too) and Vermont products. The people in the shop are very helpful. It is a great place... More

This was a small place, but informative and it had a wonderful gift shop. The ladies working were very pleasant and welcoming. It was a nice way to spend an hour or so.

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
