Current exhibit includes ski fashions over the last 80-100 years. Fabrics for ski clothing have changed. Technology has made a huge difference in our ability to keep warm and dry. Excellent ski documentary was playing on the screen. We bought a copy of the DVD so that we can watch the whole thing at home. Great display of chairlifts (hanging... More

We travel for outdoor time and don't even relish a lengthy meal in a nice restaurant let alone bring cooped up in a museum, but this is a great thing to see. We especially were impresses with the exhibit honoring the 10th mountain division- amazing samples of actual tent, uniforms, equipment. Awesome tribute to our veterans.

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.
