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.
