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.

We're doing a destination wedding next month and we headed up to Vermont to organize some last minute details. One of our tasks was to find items for the welcome bags. We decided to detour to the Maple Museum in hopes of finding some little "Vermont-y" trinkets. We struck gold! They had everything we were looking for - mini maple... More

This was very fun for me, since I make very small amounts of maple syrup. I liked seeing the history of syrup making and the equipment people used, and how it's evolved since the Native Americans first threw hot rocks into the sap to boil it down. It even interested my 9 year old. The gift shop was fabulous, with... More

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
