Creating adventures in nature that leave a lasting impression.
The Nature Museum leads experiences that engage and enlighten audiences of all ages, while inspiring stewardship of our natural world.
From camps for kids to hands-on workshops for adults, we're dedicated to delivering quality programs that generate enthusiasm for connecting with nature.
Stop by our curated museum in Grafton to view a variety of dioramas and interactive exhibits or take advantage of our kid-friendly nature and science activities.
As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we strive to keep our costs low so that are programs remain accessible to all. Your financial donation supports that effort.
Take the whole family for a day of exploration, learning, and fun at The Nature Museum. Inside, you can examine Vermont wildlife up-close with interactive exhibits, hand-painted dioramas, and mounted specimens. Crawl through an underground bear den, dig for fossils, dress up as your favorite creature, and watch the resident honeybees at work in their glass hive.
Borrow one of the Museum’s Outdoor Adventure Backpacks and head outside to continue your adventure. Stroll or skip through the pollinator garden- you may see those same honeybees out collecting nectar or take a hike through the forest along the Fairy House Trail. Discover pond dipping, enjoy a picnic in the backyard, and take a closer look at the beauty that surrounds you.
