The Mission of the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium is to inspire appreciation for our place in the natural world and to motivate our stewardship of a healthy planet.
The Fairbanks Museum was founded in 1889 by St. Johnsbury industrialist Franklin Fairbanks.
Inside our classic Victorian building, you’ll find a dazzling array of animals and artifacts, dolls and tools, shells and fossils, and much more! Take a trip through the cosmos in Vermont's only public planetarium. A full calendar of events, workshops, lectures and field programs invites everyone to explore the nature of our world.
