Vermont History Museum

109 State Street, Montpelier, VT 05609 - United States





The award-winning Freedom and Unity exhibit presents a compelling history of the state from the first inhabitants to the present. Visitors walk through time and experience a full-sized Abenaki wigwam, a re-creation of the Catamount Tavern where Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys gathered, a railroad station complete with a working telegraph and a World War II era living room furnished with period music and magazines. Stop at the museum photo booth to add yourself to Vermont's story.


Visitors can explore a chronological history of Vermont in the "Freedom & Unity" exhibit and visit the special exhibit "The Catamount in Vermont." The Local History Gallery features the exhibit "Lively & Local: Historical Societies in Vermont" which explores the work of these essential community organizations.
