The Nature Museum at Grafton PO Box 38 / 186 Townshend Road Grafton, Vermont 05146 802.843.2111 email@example.com
Open to the public since 1989, The Nature Museum at Grafton focuses on the region’s plants, animals, and geology. Hands-on exhibits, dioramas, and mounted specimens engage learners of all ages and connect visitors to the natural world in New England.
Visitors can crawl through an underground bear den; dig for fossils; find out about bats, bees, and catamounts; and learn about animal adaptations by dressing up as their favorite creature.
Outdoors, wander in our wildlife garden and catch a glimpse of passing butterflies and our resident honeybees out collecting nectar.
Take a hike through the maple, oak, beech, and birch forest in the Village Park behind the Museum. Visit "the cave," a historic rock structure created in the early 1900s. The three Village Park trails offer easy to moderate hiking.
There are picnic tables in the Museum's backyard as well as several picnic areas and gazebos along the Village Park trails.
