This is a large, spread-out institution--several dozen buildings across several dozen acres. Mightn't be interesting for very young kids, but those we saw who were 10 or above had a good time, including some of the teenagers who are required by the Constitution to act...More

Went here with family and friends and had an extraordinary time! Family friendly and lots to do and see. Hop on over ro Shelburne Farm about 3 miles away and there's even more there plus nature trails.

If you aren't interested in Americana, you need to drive on down the road. If you are, you will find the advertised 100,000 items overwhelmingly interesting. You won't find the top tier art that hangs in museums like the Guggenheim or Boston MFA. But you...More

This “museum” has something for everyone. It’s not a typical “go into a building and look at artifacts type of place;” it is comprised of 39 buildings. This museum is based on the eccentricities of Electra Havemeyer Webb who had the financial wherewithal to pursue...More

They have a shuttle, a large covered vehicle that runs a regular circuit around the property so you can get to each of the areas without excessive walking. I would bring a water bottle if it is warm. You can stay at any of... More

Much of the museum is in separate buildings so if you require assistance you should call the museum and ask if they have wheelchairs and how much of the museum is accessible via wheelchair
