So cool! My friend and I went here out of whim... and I am so happy we went. It surprised us...it was interesting. I would like to have come during the summer when an actual festival was going on.

A fabulous museum of historic giant puppets....very rural and interesting; talented participants; lefty political messages (all welcome to just listen). A gem in VT's Northeast Kingdom...
