The New England Maple Museum

The Maple Museum MuralThere is not a more recognizable symbol of Vermont than the maple tree and the wealth of sweet products it makes possible, and this rich heritage is celebrated in grand fashion at The New England Maple Museum. If it is related to the maple industry, you will surely find it here.

The Museum highlights over 200 years of maple sugaring history, from the original Native Americans to modern sugarers. Among its displays you'll find the most complete collection of maple sugaring artifacts (molds, taps, etc.) in existence, antique photos and sugaring murals, a simulation of the syrup-making process, dioramas (family farm, logging camp), live demonstrations of candy making and wooden sap bucket making and more. They of course have a tasting room, and a gift shop so you can bring the taste of Vermont home with you. Be sure to give them a call (1-800-639-4280) to find out when live demonstrations are planned.

The New England Maple Museum is located just off Route 7 in Rutland. The price of admission is $2.50 for adults and 75 cents for children, and group discounts are available. For 2002, their hours are as follows:

  • May 23-October 31, 8:30-5:30 daily
  • November 1-December 23, 10-4 daily
  • January and February, closed
  • mid-March-May 22, 10-4 daily
