New exhibit opening and Montpelier's July 3rd celebration!
Visit the Vermont History Museum on July 3rd as Montpelier celebrates Independence Day. We'll be open Monday from 10AM to 6PM, with free admission and two new exhibits in our gallery spaces.
A Stitch in Time
We all know the phrase "History repeats itself." We hear it applied to politics, wars, and large social movements, but what about the small things? In our new rotating exhibit, the Vermont Historical Society will explore how your fashion choices today are informed by the fashions of history.
In our first rotation, we will examine the new trend of luxury loungewear - at-home comfort clothes that are also seen as status symbols. Has the pandemic and working from home ruined couture, or is this just another rotation of the fashion history wheel? On view in the National Life Gallery through June 2024.
Calvin Coolidge: Vermont's President
On loan from the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation, this exhibition presents key episodes and questions from Coolidge's life with specially-commissioned illustrations and explanatory text. Visitors will also be able to learn about Coolidge's communications styles through interactives. On view in the Jackie Calder Gallery through June 2024.
