SOUTHERN VERMONT NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
Located at the Hogback Mountain Scenic Overlook on Route 9 in West Marlboro, Vermont. The Southern Vermont Natural History
Museum is surrounded by over 600 acres of protected forest land. With panoramic views of three states, the museum is
situated in one of the most beautiful locations in southern Vermont. The Museum was established in 1996 around the historic
Luman Ranger Nelson Natural History Collection, one of the largest collections of native birds and mammals in the northeast.
Over 250 species are represented!
With a lifelong interest in Natural History and education, museum founder, Ed Metcalfe intended
the museum would serve as an educational resource and gateway to the natural world for the local communities and visitors
to the area.
Since those founding days the museum has grown substantially. Consistently adding and improving exhibits that cater
to both the local schools and families, as well as offering an all-weather attraction for visitors to the region year-round.
About the Museum
"We look forward to visiting the museum every year on our vacation! We love to see how many more birds from your collection we’ve
seen on our hikes."
