We love the Birds of VT museum! The wood carvings are beautiful. My toddler loved looking at the wooden birds as well as the bird feeder viewing window. There is also a really great short hike to a small pond across the street.

Although interesting from an adult perspective, this was not a great venue for the kids. They were wondering why the birds were not moving (they were 2 1/2 and 5 1/2 at the time). One could see how a venue like this might readily appeal to an adult who was into woodcarving, but for the kids the Audubon Center just up the road is a much better bet.
