Nice/well kept museum. One room dedicated to Grandma Moses. I found the rifle collection and the Wasp automobile to be interesting.

We began with Grandma Moses and wandered around through the rest of the building, finding a varied assortment of art and artifacts that were well displayed. For us Californians, it was an interesting survey of the area, past and present.

As a big fan of Americana and folk art, I was enchanted by the exhibit of Grandma Moses paintings which detail rural America during the early 20th century. The small, intimate scale of the Bennington Museum invites guests to linger.

We visited to see the works of Grandma Moses and were not disappointed. There were many of her paintings, a television interviewer and information. There was also Vermont historical items as well.
