  • FREE! An enjoyable location. Easy enough to spend 4+ hours there. Very pretty grounds located on the shore of Lake Champlain. Tour at your own pave. A number of buildings closed for renovation. I assume there are times the forge and boat building is being done live. Worth the trip. I really liked the giant Ice Yacht.
  • A fun place to visit, but rain showers dampened our spirits and shortened our visit. Good mix of things to see outdoors as well as more detailed exhibits indoors. We didn't stick around for the tour of the sail boat on the waterfront.
