Fascinating artifacts and exhibits for a small museum. The displays are well done and the narratives are well written. Worth spending a couple of hours here to immerse yourself in each exhibit. I loved the cannon and the swords.

Had not visited this nice little Museum in about two years and it still is a winner! Loved the Vt train exhibit. Allow at least an hour so you don’t feel rushed. No fee at all to go to this neat Museum.

You can go through this museum in about an hour on your own. The exhibits change if they are not about Norwich University. Some of the current exhibit that I thought would be there seemed recently removed. No one was working there today, so I...More

A small museum that has well laid out displays. Displays are changed out on a regular basis. The Sullivan Museum is affiliated with the Smithsonian Museum which allows for a wider selection of items and information to be viewed.

Lots of great paraphenalia and artifacts from different time periods, to include stories and pictures from Norwich grads and other members of the Armed Services. Take about 30-40 minutes to walk all the way through, but it's worth it. Lots of great and interesting information!
