Nice museum. Interesting tid bits on Vermont history. Did not see it all, good reason to return on another rainy day?

I was not planning to visit the museum but we walked by and decided to give it a shot. I am so glad that I did. The museum takes you on a full history of Vermont from Native American history to colonization, to their efforts in the American Revolution to statehood and beyond. As you begin it starts at a wigwam and as you walk through you are able to get the full story of Vermont. Their displays are excellent with plenty of artifacts which tell a complete story of who, what, where, when, why and how. If I remember correctly we only paid about $7 per adult person and it was worth it. They also have a small gift shop which had some great items to purchase. For the purposes of planning your visit it can take you anywhere from 1-2 hours to see all exhibits, maybe more if you really get into reading all the stories. I highly recommend this Musuem, you won’t be disappointed.

We visited this place on October 9. It is a one floor museum where you get a view of the Vermont history. Do not expect a state of the art museum. It seems more a museum for schoolchildren to actively get an idea what the inhabitants did in those days.

This charming, old hotel now houses the Vermont state museum which gives a good overview of the history of the state and how it connects to NY State. Well displayed and enjoyable.

We spent an hour slowly ambling through this well designed display, each room was carefully crafted to portray its own period of history. Many artifacts to gaze upon giving us a real sense of the lives of the people over the years.
