About the Vermont History Museum: The museum’s permanent exhibit, “Freedom and Unity: One Ideal, Many Stories,” opened in March 2004 and won a national award. The multimedia exhibit, which represents Vermont’s history from 1600 to the present, fills 5,000 square feet in Montpelier’s Pavilion Building. Visitors can take a walk through time to experience a full-sized Abenaki wigwam, a re-creation of the Catamount Tavern where Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys gathered, a railroad station complete with a working telegraph, and a WWII living room furnished with period music and magazines.
