NATURAL HISTORY DISPLAYS! 

The Southern Vermont Natural History Museum was founded around the Historic Luman Nelson Natural History Collection.  With over 600 mounted specimens of native northeastern birds and mammals, close to 250 species are represented.  This is the largest collection of its kind in Vermont .  In addition to the Natural History exhibit, the Museum houses a northeastern Mineralogy Collection, Live Animal exhibits and presents educational programs on site and around the region.

If you find an injured wild animal be sure to get it to a veterinarian or licensed wildlife rehabilitator as soon as possible.

The Luman R. Nelson Natural History Collection is an historic collection of Northeastern birds and mammals including over 250 species in custom dioramas.  Collected in the early 1900’s this is the largest collection of its kind in Vermont and one of the largest in the Northeast.

NATURAL HISTORY
birds

Since 1998 the Museum has housed a small collection of non-releasable birds of prey.  They represent a sample of the types of birds you can see living wild in New England and are the stars of our educational programming.

REPTILES

Click here to meet our scaly friends and learn a little bit about these ecologically valuable and often misunderstood animals.  Many of these animals are unwanted pets, sadly this becomes true of most pet reptiles.

Insects, fish, arachnids and mammals!  Take a peek at the varied critters who round out our live animal educators.  These animals provide a valuable look at some of the varied wildlife of New England and the world.
