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.

It bit more like a shop with extras and quite pricey compared to other things we did on our holiday but interesting nevertheless. Good videos with modern day film but history too. Lots of information around the place and some interesting things to see.

We loved this converted church that has become a museum. It has a comprehensive collection of skis and ski memorabilia. We loved the old chair-lift car in the center of the building.

A nice 20 minute stop but keep in mind this museum is very small. Most items are still not labeled, so you don't get to see or hear the history behind them. They have some really old equipment, but you have no idea exactly how old it is. $5/person is a lot considering the size of this place, but hopefully... More

Summer or winter go here. Revolving exhibits so you see different things .... skiing, boarding, chair-lifts, clothing for examples. See old trophies that aren't the type today. 10th Mtn has a permanent display. There are many other things to see ! Please leave a donation --- once you see the upkeep of the old bldg & the exhibits, you'll understand.... More
