Bring your walking shoes, as it's a huge 45 acre museum with multiple buildings and exhibits and great gardens. Not to be missed is the 220 foot steamboat Ticonderoga. There were 25 historic structures, including a general store, covered bridge, and a lighthouse. The kids' favorite was the circus exhibit including a 500-foot circus parade and the 1920 carousel. There were also quite a few interactive exhibits. American folk art, fine art, Impressionist paintings, and even textile arts were all represented. It was $18 for adults and $9 for kids.

The Vermont Teddy Bear Factory is just across the street and with $2 admission for adults (kids are free), it's worth the stop if you're in the area.
