Fairly expensive for a short stop but interesting enough. The shop is well stocked with o,empty of maple stuff. Got to taste four different maple syrups, excellent. There is a very good short movie about the maple process that is worth watching. Very helpful and provided a map to visit the four local covered bridges.

We visited in April on a 65 degree day and paid $5/person for the self-guided tour. I could only stay in there for about 5 minutes because it was so COLD!! The museum had to be about 45 degrees!!! Then I bought some maple kettle corn to console myself and it was stale. Ugh.

I have come here every time we've visited since when I moved as a kid. It never gets old and I can always find something new, in addition to the old favorites like maple candy. Love the addition of the big maple jug out front for picture opportunities!

This is a great place to learn about the Maple Syrup industry of NE and especially Vermont. We really enjoyed our time here. Great location for picking up some gifts for friends and family as well. Just a suggestion from me... Find the book named, "Moose on Carrara's Mountain" and buy it for your children. It is a great true... More

This is a charming museum that gives you the history and explains the process of sugar making in Vermont. The information is presented in a fun way which makes it easy to take in. It is fascinating and educational at the same time. At the end of the self guided tour is a short film that shows how one family... More

I learned so from this place and we crossed vermont. A cute kinda funky but informative museum to the process of collecting and sugaring this natural product. This sweet and tasty syrup has nothing added and tastes great. Michael, the owner, gave us much info. Will be a holiday gift.

The Maple Museum not only offers the history and education of creating syrup from sweetwater, but also has an extensive gift shop stuffed with everything Maple. You'll be surprised! The store's inventory contains more than the sweet stuff, many local artists are also represented.

You are able to take a self guided tour that shows how maple syrup has evolved over the years. Then, you get to watch a film about the actual process. They have a very large gift shop and offer samples of many of their products
