There’s so much to do here
Explore the permanent exhibits, showing lifelike birds in dioramas of their habitats. You could watch live, wild birds at our feeders, from the walk-in tree house, or from our bird blind. You might browse our gift shop, or discover Vermont artists in our annually changing art shows. You could explore our trails, attend a special program, or relax in our pollinator garden spaces. Children love the hands-on spaces, the chance to try crafts, and exploring story and discovery trails.
Indoors, most visitors find 1½ to 2 hours is a good amount of time to fully enjoy the bird carvings, art exhibit, and other displays within the Museum building. We suggest first-time visitors watch an 5-minute introductory video. [ More …to come ]
