Directions to the Museum

The Birds of Vermont Museum, in Huntington, is nearly equidistant from Burlington, Waterbury, and Middlebury, and easy to reach from all three. All directions and map links are for paved roads where possible.

From Burlington:

Head south on I-89 to Exit 11 (Richmond). Take Rte 2 E to Richmond Village. At the stoplight in Richmond Village, turn right (south) towards Huntington and follow the signs (5 miles).

This google map shows the route described above.

From Waterbury/Montpelier:

Head north on I-89 to Exit 11 (Richmond). Take Rte 2 E to Richmond Village. At the stoplight in Richmond Village, right (south) towards Huntington and follow the signs (5 miles).

You may wish to review a google map of the route from Waterbury via I-89 (what you’d do from Montpelier and further points). Or, if you like a shorter, slower road from Waterbury, come along Route 2.

From Middlebury:

Take US Rte 7 North from Middlebury to New Haven. Turn right at State Rte 17 (East). Take this through the town of Bristol, then follow State Route 116 north through Starksboro towards South Hinesburg. Turn right onto Hollow Road, and take it to the end (a stop sign). Turn left onto Main Road. Follow this through the village of Huntington. Turn a sharp, uphill left onto Sherman Hollow, a dirt road. The Museum is 1 mile up that road and 1/2 mile past the Green Mountain Audubon Nature Center.

You may wish to see the google map of this route. (Google sometimes recommends coming up Route 116 all the way to North Road in Hinesburg; that is shorter, but is a dirt road, and not always easier or better.)

If you prefer the back roads (especially in foliage season), we recommend using Google Maps to get directions from Hinesburg, Waitsfield, Vergennes, Bristol, or other pleasant smaller towns. (These links are for paved routes only, except for Sherman Hollow.)
