Bennington Museum

Bennington Museum

The 28,000-square-foot museum, which owns more than 60,000 artifacts from southern Vermont and the surrounding area, contains the Grandma Moses Gallery, the largest collection of Mary Robertson's (Moses') paintings of nostalglic rural American life open to the public. Visitor's can view her self-decorated 18th-century tilt-top table, which she used as an easel, and the original, relocated schoolhouse that she attended. The Battle of Bennington exhibit documents the American victory over the British in 1777 through rare military artifacts, such as the Battle of Bennington Flag, one of the oldest battle flags in existence, and Vermont-manufactured firearms.
