I couldn't find the botany trail without asking someone. We were wowed by all the outside sculptures as you drive up the windy road. The grounds are kept up nicely.

I hiked in from the Equinox trail system, but they had plenty of parking available. They have a free museum & another more modern one for $6. Friendly greeting! The art is updated frequently. Worth a visit.

My spouse's Uncle was quite instrumental in the building of the new building and he proudly showed us around on our visit to Vermont. This is a beautiful site that showcases regional art with a history that goes back many years. The location is lovely and would be really dramatic in the fall. It is really worth a visit if you have the time. The admission fee is affordable.

This place is a catch-can. Some of the stuff is wonderful and some so-so. Once a year there's an art sale and I've actually bought a small oil painting that I still enjoy. The setting is a lovely place to have lunch in the outdoor cafe with a view.
