Birds of Vermont Museum

900 Sherman Hollow Rd., Huntington, VT

Natural history meets art at the Birds of Vermont Museum.

The Birds of Vermont Museum’s permanent exhibits show lifelike birds depicting those who live in Vermont’s wetlands, forests and fields, including nesting species, year-round residents and winter visitors.

Nature trails wind through 100 acres and are open to visitors of all ages from sunrise to sundown. Look for bees and butterflies in the pollinator sanctuary, have an outdoor picnic in the tree house, stroll with your family along their Discovery trail, or read this month’s book along Story Walk. Ask about the regularly scheduled bird walks or join the museum for other special events, including nature walks, activities for kids, and lectures.

The gift shop offers one-of-a-kind items from a variety of Vermont artists, how-to-books for carving, story books, field guides, nature-related puzzles and gifts and bird-friendly coffee. Children can take home ideas for crafts, coloring sheets and more.
