This is a nice little museum to spend a little time in. There is a lot of reading. The video is interesting to watch and the old skis, ski chairs, and gondola hanging up are fun to look at.

We popped in here for under an hour when touring about downtown Stowe. This is more like a historical exhibit in the town than a full-fledged museum. It has a number of interesting little exhibits and artifacts. They do request a donation at the door...More

Cute small museum with photo's, a movie playing, old ski equipment and clothing and the history of skiing Stowe and ski patrol etc. Only need about and hour or less to really see it all, but wonderful!

A must visit for any member of the National Ski Patrol. Lots of old skis, kind of like my garage, but lots of nuggets of the history of the NSP and the 10th Mountain troops.

This is a quaint, friendly and interesting museum. We learned a lot in a short space of time about the history of skiing. It is donation only and has a nice gift shop.
