Due to concerns over transmission of COVID-19, the Museum Board and Staff have regretfully decided to close the Museum to the public until April 15th. We will be actively developing Facebook Live and other distance-learning videos over the coming weeks to keep everyone in touch. Check this page and our Facebook page regularly for updated information.
Come visit us at the
Southern Vermont Natural History Museum!
The Southern Vermont Natural History Museum fosters an interest in nature, the environment and the natural sciences through exhibition and educational activities. The museum displays one of New England's largest collections of native species along with live animal exhibits, ecology, geology and natural history exhibits. With nearby access to over 600 protected acres of hiking trails, the family fun and adventure can continue outside year-round.
The Museum is a 501(c)3 Not-for-profit institution. All of the Museums funding comes from program fees, admissions, grants, and your generous donations.
"We look forward to visiting the museum every year on our vacation! We love to see how many more birds from your collection we’ve seen on our hikes."
April A. and John D. RI
