Museums

EXPERIENCE ART, HISTORY AND SCIENCE IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT

Vermont's museums offer up unexpected delights and wonders. From paintings by European and American masters, to folk art and contemporary sculpture, you'll find it all. History museums tell the stories of innovative and passionate Vermonters making significant contributions in industry, nation-building, and human rights, while science centers invite your participation as you explore topics ranging from sustainable farming to the rumors of Lake Champlain’s sea serpent Champ. Museum gift shops feature unique gifts, books and Vermont-made items for home, office and personal adornment. All well worth your visit!

Some of Vermont's museums are open seasonally -- and in the case of Vermont -- that means spring, summer and fall. Be sure to check websites before visiting to be sure that your destination is indeed open for the season and welcoming visitors.
