This place showcases to much equipment that's not from Vermont and that caused far too many ski-injuries (junk, in fact). The curators are way under-informed about the real history of most ski-equipment. Sad for a real ski-town.

Well presented and lots of ski memorabilia. A skiers delight if they are also a history buff. Lots of information about the history of skiing in the area as well as famous skiers from the area.

It was ok but the NH ski museum is so much better. In and out in less than a hour only because we chatted with the tour guide.

Every museum depends on donations to do their upkeeping. So, donate & learn about all the interesting stories of skiing. We spent more time than we thought we were going to spend.

The Museum is small. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it. But if you are in the Town of Stowe, Main Street, check it out.

It took us about an hour and 30 minutes because we sat through the movie. The movie was an hour, which we did not know. It was all about the history of skiing in the US rather than the history of Stowe. It was interesting. The museum was 5.00 a person or 10.00 a family. The person at the front... More

We saw a great film about the skiing that took and still does at Dartmouth College. It was long, but informative.

A neat little museum and worth seeing if you like to ski or snow board. Friendly person at desk who provided us with lots of information about the museum and the town.

Unfriendly & unhelpful woman at ticket sales. No smile. No "welcome to our museum, do you have any questions?" Just a brusque, "$10 a family," as she didn't even look our direction, and you can forget about the smile. What do you know--we didn't stay. And they can forget about our $10.

This hidden gem in Stowe, which we came upon as we were strolling alon the main street in the center of Stowe, popped out like a Jack in the Box. We went there three years ago and the whole family enjoyed it! It's a perfect spot to learn anectdotally about skiing, it's personalities and history.
