We moved fairly quickly through the buildings which are arranged along a mile circular perimeter road. The circus horseshoe building was impressive with its circus posters and hand made miniature carriages. The Ticonderoga- what can I say - is impressive. Some people critique the benefactors...More

It would be easy to spend a whole day here, either with kids or with no kids, though tickets age good for TWO consecutive days, in case you want to break it up. As two adults we came on a weekday, spent about six hours...More

Lots of stuff to see, and some really cool insights into a world you wouldn't find just anywhere. All of the staff was very nice, some of the exhibits were a bit awkward because there was no one in them, so you're walking through these...More

This museum is amazing! The grounds are beautifully maintained! The sheer collection of art is overwhelming! You can spend an entire day admiring historic artifacts, and not see everything!

When you are traveling to the North Country, the high-rise Green Mountains will surround you like so many reclining presences discussing philosophies of life. Besides the idyllic countryside, culture awaits you. Not only the happily laid out Church Street Market Place teeming with interesting shops,...More

Museum consisted of 38 buildings and I arrived when it opened and left when it closed with still a few buildings unvisited. It is a very nice museum filled with "Americana" reflective of history.

This is not a traditional 1-building museum. It is a collection of many buildings, each with its own set of treasures, spread out over a large "campus". There are all sorts of wonderful collections: fine art, toys & miniatures, furnishings, stagecoaches and more. A real...More

Outdoor History Museum. A nice place to see and experience the history of Vermont. Displays of Vermont Art, Quilts, Toys, and many historic buildings. Worth a half day visit.

Not your average museum be prepared to walk from each exhibit to the next. What an amazing experience I will never forget. Between old stage coaches to an original general store picked right out of the 1900's you will not be disappointed.

They have a shuttle, a large covered vehicle that runs a regular circuit around the property so you can get to each of the areas without excessive walking. I would bring a water bottle if it is warm. You can stay at any of... More

I don't know but they are very easy going so just give them a call. Make sure you differentiate between the Farm and the Museum as they are two distinct organizations.

Much of the museum is in separate buildings so if you require assistance you should call the museum and ask if they have wheelchairs and how much of the museum is accessible via wheelchair
