Fairbanks Museum

Founded in 1891 based on a Victorian “cabinet of curiosities” collected by Franklin Fairbanks, the Fairbanks Museum inspires wonder and curiosity about our natural world. With an eclectic collection of animals and artifacts, shells and fossils, meteorites and meteorology, plus much more! Home to the SunCommon Eye on the Sky Weather Center and the Lyman Spitzer Jr. Planetarium, Vermont’s only public planetarium. All this under the triumphant arch of our classic Victorian building, a cornerstone of St. Johnsbury’s Historic Main Street District.
