VERMONT TOURISM NETWORK - Your Vermont Group Tour Planning Resource!

Rokeby Museum National Historic Site

Are you looking for a one to two-hour opportunity for groups to experience memorable stories of Vermont’s past?

Rokeby Museum brings to life the stories of four generations of Vermont Quakers who, from 1793 to 1961, lived and worked at Rokeby as farmers, abolitionists, artists, writers and active members of their community.

Galleries in the Museum’s modern education center include the museum’s award-winning multi-media exhibit Free & Safe: The Underground Railroad in Vermont, which explores the stories of fugitives from slavery who were sheltered at Rokeby. Seasonal special exhibits combining art and history make connections to contemporary life.

The historic house – fully furnished with 200 years of belongings – offers an intimate glimpse into Vermont history. Eight historic farm buildings set in a pastoral landscape invite leisurely investigation.

Rokeby Museum can prepare a tailored experience based on your group’s special interests, and lively gallery talks with the curator and catering are available by prearrangement.

Rokeby Museum is a major stop on Vermont’s African American Heritage Trail. Groups can take in the historic and educational sites along the trail and combine this with iconic Vermont destinations for the perfect combination of learning and fun!

Dates of Operation:

Group tours available by reservation only from May to November, with a 15-person minimum for $8.00 per person; driver & guide’s admission is complimentary.
