This facility is home to the world's largest public collection of Grandma Moses paintings as well as the schoolhouse she attended as a youngster.
War history and other historical items include the Bennington Flag, considered to be the oldest extant stars and stripes; firearms and uniforms, early tools, toys and dolls.
The museum also houses a noted assortment of Bennington pottery, an impressive array of 19th and early 20th century American glass, American sculpture and paintings, and 18th-19th century American furniture. Also available for viewing is a 1925 luxury touring automobile, the "Wasp," conceived and built by Bennington resident Karl Martin.
The museum features a local history and genealogy library and the Museum Gift Shop offers Grandma Moses prints, Vermont-made items and more.
