Smithsonian Day at the Vermont History Museum!
Museum Day is an annual celebration of boundless curiosity hosted by Smithsonian Magazine: Participating museums and cultural institutions across the country will provide free entry to anyone presenting a Museum Day ticket.
The Vermont History Museum will be participating in this year's festivities: visit SmithsonianMag.org to download a free ticket.
While at the museum, you can visit our award-winning Freedom and Unity exhibit, which presents a compelling history of the state from the first inhabitants to the present. Visitors walk through time and experience a full-sized Abenaki wigwam, a re-creation of the Catamount Tavern where Ethan Allen's Green Mountain Boys gathered, a railroad station complete with a working telegraph and a World War II era living room furnished with period music and magazines.
You can also visit our latest special exhibit "A New American Globe," as well as our Local History Gallery to check out "The Common Cracker," which explores an appetizing piece of Vermont's history, culture through food.
