Adult tour groups are welcome to visit the Vermont History Museum’s permanent exhibit, Freedom and Unity: One Ideal, Many Stories. This exhibit covers over 400 years of Vermont history. Visitors can explore an Abenaki wigwam, examine the impact of the railroad, and immerse themselves in a World War-II era living room. Scheduled groups receive a brief welcome and introduction before embarking on a self-guided museum visit. The group rate is $5.00 per person. Most groups spend at least one hour visiting the museum.
