There wasn't that much in this museum; however, there was a very interesting temporary exhibit of incredibly unusual photos from India. We didn't inquire, but we assume the temporary exhibits are as big and equally interesting. The permanent exhibit is decent for such a small university.

There was such a wonderful variety of exhibits throughout the museum -- far more than many museums of that size. There was one statue of "Penelope that was beautiful and I would love to know more about its history -- where it was found and how it got to VT.

This is a small museum on the University of Vermont campus. We walked here from downtown. The walk also gives you a chance to see the beautiful chapel. The cost for seniors is 3.00. Some of the exhibits were closed but there were some surprises. There was one of my favorites, a Georgia O'Keeffe, Taos Mountain, an original Norman Rockwell,... More

My first problem was finding where to park. I parked in the lot to the right of the museum as you look at the front. I went in and asked about parking passes since the lot I was in had signs saying parking permits were required. It turned out I had to park in the lot on the other side... More

The Fleming is the place to go if you are in need of an art fix. With a diverse permanent collection and frequently changing exhibits, there is art for everyone.

Would love to review this fine museum but it is closed when school is not in Summer session. We read the reviews on line, reviewed hours of operation, nothing about closed in Summer. Hope to visit another time.

Liked seeing Vermont artist Weyde painting of Mount Mansfield. Special exhibit of pop artists enjoyable. Neo-colonial building is interesting. For parking, park in adjacent visitor lot. You will need to go inside museum for pass. Go to restaurant nearby in hospital - great value.

We had a rainy day in Burlington so looked for a nice museum visit. Saw this on Trip Advisor so decided to give it a try. The museum is small with 2 floors and maybe 8 or so big rooms for display. There was a special display on the main floor plus a nice display of Senator Leahy's photography upstairs.... More
