We were there for a presentation. The room was nice and the view of the river from the back was wonderful. We did not see many exhibits, but what I saw was very interesting.

For being free and operating off donated items, it's amazing. They have gathered so much history about their town (and VT in general). If you're looking for something to do and enjoy history, it's great.

We dropped in on this little museum. It had some pretty great displays throughout the old house. The house tells the story of the early life of Woodstock. Featured at the moment was a display on wedding dresses. The best was the dress that had...More
