The Bennington Museum is most famous for it's Grandma Moses collection but it has so much more than that. There is the whole room about the Vermont/New York battles of the Revolutionary War and there is an amazing historic car, and the history of Bennington pottery plus more, all clearly explained and easily understood. Good for adults, teens and mature tweenagers.

A Lincoln statue greets you as you enter this delightful tribute to Grandma Moses. However, the museum presents so much more. No trip to Bennington is complete without a visit.

The Bennington Museum is home to local and regional art as well as a first-rate archive and library with records going back to the town’s settling in the 1761. The galleries contain permanent collections of Anna Mary Robertson (Grandma) Moses, Bennington as an industrial and economic hub, as well as creative rotating exhibits. In the latter category, (re)Sounding features early musical instruments with accompanying audio and a display of the works of New York City and Vermont artist Scot Borofsky. The Museum is well worth the visit on its own or whether one is visiting the museums of nearby Williams and/or North Adams, MA.

Our favorite part of the museum was the display of several Grandma Moses originals. They truly are great works of art. There is also a well-done history of the Battle of Bennington complete with weapons, uniforms, and an excellent description of the battle and its iimportance.

We really enjoyed our time here. The Grandma Moses exhibit is beautiful, and the Battle of Bennington room is fascinating. The Gilded Age exhibit has some beautiful pieces.
