The Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium is much more than Northern New England’s museum of natural history — it is a place to marvel at the wonders of our world.  Perfect for families and visitors of all ages, the Fairbanks Museum invites you to explore your universe.

The Museum holds over 175,000 objects from an eclectic permanent collection, including natural science specimens, historical artifacts, archival photographs and documents, and ethnological treasures. 

Changing and long-term exhibits focus on aspects of culture, art and technology relating to the history, traditions and landscape of the Great Northern Forest. 

The Museum is home to the Lyman Spitzer Jr. Planetarium, the only public planetarium in Vermont, where you can explore the cosmos, guided by one of our astronomy experts.

The Naturalists Corner is a place where you can bring your questions about rocks, bones, bugs and plants that you find in the fields, forests and wetlands where you are. Our naturalists will do their best to answer your questions about invasive species, healthy ecosystems and native habitats.

We hope you'll return to the Museum often, as exhibits change and you'll discover new things with each visit.
