  • This place is a hidden gem in the state of Vermont! Well worth the effort to drive off the beaten path. The collection of carved birds, raptors, and owls from Vermont and the Lake Champlain region...

  • Not a birder, I still enjoyed this stop. It is amazing the time and skill devoted to each of the carvings. The volunteers are friendly and eager to answer questions.

  • I went here for my birthday with the family. It was nice to see all the wood carving of every kind of bird. It's a great way to add to social science for homeschooling parents.
  • Inside the museum itself is very cute. The wood carvings are incredibly detailed and plaques are very informative. The workshop is really cool - you can see where the original artist actually sat and carved, as well as all the tools he used. The two family bathrooms were very clean. They require that you schedule your visits during the time of covid, but they are very accommodating. Family membership (plus 4 guest passes) is only $50. They provide scavenger hunts for kids and have a really cute shop right inside the front door. They also have nice story trails. We got a membership because there's so much to see and do. Highly recommend 👍🏼
