Go see it. You drive up and you think you have gone back in time to “rad” “cool, man” and every hippie phrase you remember from the ‘60’s. But it is a mind-blowing experience that anyone over the age of 50 would find exhilarating. It...More

A coworker heard I was travelling through Vermont and said I should see this place. It's out there, both in location and overall experience. There is no real entrance, cashier, or guidance. You just go check out the barns full of stuff. Amazing collections of...More

Possibly the most creative Art form that can be experienced. It is puppetry, music, costumes, political satire and just remarkable. The museum is open most days and I think all days (need to be checked) The performances are at fixed times and have changed over...More
