We did a tour of 11 different museums in Vermont. This was a great exhibit. Lots of insight in what happened in the area. The exhibits are interesting and educational. Take about 1:30-2 hours to check things out. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable.

Vermont Historical Society Museum presents information using recreated settings and interactive displays. While it does not have animatronics, it is reminiscent of a Disneyesque style of presentation. Well done, and much to learn.

This museum is located next to the state capital building and has numerous displays on the history of Vermont. A good place to visit after visiting the capital building.

This is a wonderful, well -displayed, historical museum. We spent around an hour and a half and could have stayed longer. We were with my grandchildren and their staying power is short. We will definitely go back.

After touring the State Capitol (highly recommended) we stopped in to check out this Historical Museum. We had stopped in previously many times and wanted the kids (ages 8 & 10) to see the stuffed catamount. To our surprise the entrance has been renovated into...More
