There wasn't that much in this museum; however, there was a very interesting temporary exhibit of incredibly unusual photos from India. We didn't inquire, but we assume the temporary exhibits are as big and equally interesting. The permanent exhibit is decent for such a small...More

This is a small museum on the University of Vermont campus. We walked here from downtown. The walk also gives you a chance to see the beautiful chapel. The cost for seniors is 3.00. Some of the exhibits were closed but there were some surprises....More

The Fleming is the place to go if you are in need of an art fix. With a diverse permanent collection and frequently changing exhibits, there is art for everyone.

Would love to review this fine museum but it is closed when school is not in Summer session. We read the reviews on line, reviewed hours of operation, nothing about closed in Summer. Hope to visit another time.

Liked seeing Vermont artist Weyde painting of Mount Mansfield. Special exhibit of pop artists enjoyable. Neo-colonial building is interesting. For parking, park in adjacent visitor lot. You will need to go inside museum for pass. Go to restaurant nearby in hospital - great value.
