Not worth a seperate trip
Aug 2018 • Family
Not what I expected. Small house with some furniture but no details or history to see or read. There was a small exhibit from WWII but not worth making a trip for. I was a little disappointed.

Eva Garcelon-Hart, Archivist is a delight to deal with regarding historical matters

I had sent family memorabilia in advance to her regarding my husband and his family. She is was very efficient and knowledgeable about what artifacts could be part of the historical record. I met with her at the Museum and she retained the appropriate items and returned the rest of them to me. I was very pleased with the exchange.

Side trip

Don't plan your day around this museum. It's OK, with a lot of furniture. The exhibit of the old pictures was interesting.There was a neat picture of the steamship Ticonderoga. You can see the ship itself at the Shelburne museum in Shelburne VT.

Wonderful small museum
May 2018 • Couples
This museum offered more than I expected with two floors of history and several exhibit rooms. They also have a research center, children’s hands-on play area, and a gift shop. Located in the center of town, there is a small well-maintained garden on the side of the building. Don’t be put off by the rather worn banners on the outside. The interior of the museum has a number of unusual black marble fireplaces, well organized old photo exhibits, old-fashioned clothing and an interesting collection of current wooden crafts and art blending well with old collections. Learn about the people who helped shape the community in the 1800s & 1900s.

Nice museum
Aug 2017 • Solo
My husband and I enjoyed touring this museum. It is the oldest house museum in the US. It is a self-guided tour so you can take your time reading the information about the exhibits. As senior citizens, we only paid $4.50 each. Well worth the price. A lot of interesting things to see!

A small corner of Middlebury hosts a museum, an art gallery and a great cafe
Jul 2017 • Family
The Sheldon museum features Vermont artifacts with special exhibits monthly and has a great side garden, nearby is the Edgewater Gallery with very fine works of art, and the Storm Cafe just down the narrow one-way street is a riverside restaurant with bistro style food. Enjoy a good part of your day here. Currently the museum is hosting the works of children's book artists and on August 16th in the morning they will sponsor a two-hour participatory workshop featuring the picture book "Where is Sam?" The book's author Sandy Gartner and illustrator Jill Dye will present the book and then conduct an interactive paper-cutting book-making session for the attendees. The program is free and copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Nice Local Museum
Oct 2016 • Couples
This is a nice local museum of Vermont history. There are lots of artifacts including furniture and art works. The bicycle exhibit was the most notable part of the visit and should not be missed if you are interested in biking or history. This museum packs a lot in a small space.

150 years of Bicycling
Sep 2016 • Family
This was a great exhibit in a nice museum. The museum's main exhibit is life in Vermont with collections from Henry Sheldon. But, the bicycling exhibit has old bicycles, pictures of people using the bicycles and explanations about them. Worth the visit, plus a nice gift shop.

Very Nice
Jun 2016 • Couples
The Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury does a great job of telling the history of Addison County. Their exhibits provide a good way to learn about the area over many decades. They also offer special exhibits. Their next one starting in June covers the history of cycling. Seeing all the early 20th century bicycles was the best part of our visit.
