“Small but Interesting Collection with Vermont History Emphasis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We stopped in while on a family trip to middlebury. Well worth a visit. The special exhibit was clothing made with natural materials (such as bark) on bodies topped with animal heads. Most creative !! Also interesting historiall artifacts from Vermont's history.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We visited the museum taking a stroll through the quintessential Vermont town of Middlebury. That someone could have the forethought to keep and set on display all these wonderful and diverse examples of a former time is truly remarkable.

During our visit there was a display of clothing made from bark, feathers grasses etc. Different!

The 500+ foot exibit of a traveling circus was incredible, the train cars wonderful. Volunteers made my day.

“Middlebury trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

The store was nice. Lots of history information--Henry Sheldon was an interesting man. We did not tour the entire rooms of the museum--5$ a person. Found it quaint--like the entire town!
