Facility Access Information
The Museum's grounds are accessible as are nearly all of our buildings. Paths, walkways and roads consist of firmly packed gravel or slate surfaces and the terrain varies in slope and surface. Because each building is unique we have published a Physical Accessibility Guide to help you plan your day. It is available at the admissions desk. To have a copy of the accessibility guide sent to you, please contact us at: (802) 985-3346 or e-mail us at: <a href="mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org?Subject=Accessibility Guide">
