“An inspired, eclectic collection that started as a "cabinet of curiosities" during the Victorian era. Displays include taxidermy, shells, tools, mummies, and artifacts from around the world. Don't miss John Hampson's "Bug Art" -- mosaics made entirely of beetles and moths -- and the seasonal native butterfly house (in the summer). Home to Vermont's only public planetarium (temporarily closed due to COVID19) and the Eye on the Sky weather center.”
