Inexpensive slice of history. Volunteer was incredibly sweet and enjoyable to talk to as she was very passionate about her job. I didn't enjoy the local artist displaying their stuff in the middle of the museum and felt it was very unnecessary from a patrons perspective. Definitely worth stopping in for only $5.00 and enjoy the surrounding shops

Was in Middlebury for a wedding and stopped in to the museum on a walk around town before the festivities. The museum was adorable. There was an antique train display that was pretty cool, and all of the other random historical items were interesting to see and read about. The gallery portion of the museum was also really neat. My husband and I loved the artwork. The staff was also extremely warm and friendly!

A very comprehensive history of the bicycle - a traveling exhibition in September 2016.

A wonderful, secluded, and yet conpletely in-touch museum focusing on the beauty, splendor, and vibrancy of Addison County history. Focused on both public exhibits and active archiving projects, it's a gem within the green tapestry of Vermont's gorgeous landscape. The curators are engaging and informed, filled with both a passion for their work.
