Very nice, old, refurbished building. I would picture a small wedding reception, Taylor park is across the street which would be an additional perk for pictures! Another plus, there is a convenient elevator!

Fun place to spend the mid-afternoon! Learned a lot about this wonderful town. Evidently there was a group of Confederate soldiers who raided across the border from Montreal during the civil war. They robbed banks and stole horses in an effort to distract the federal troops. Lots of other things to see in the old school building. Well worth the... More

I lived in St. Albans in 2002-2003. A curious find is a collection of early x-ray tubes! These tubes are owned by a local university. I am interested as I served in Vietnam in 1967 as a Medic taking X-Rays!

I was a bit skeptical about opening up my wallet and paying the six dollar admission fee. It was worth every penny and we spent at least two hours in the museum. So much to see with friendly people to describe the displays. The town is rich in history and one will never know without not going to this museum.... More

I've been a few times with my son (now 5) and we have enjoyed the multitude of displays to look at. I will say that outside of the train exhibit and the nice diorama of the Saint Albans area it's more for older kids. First visit there one of the docents paid for my entire family. Many of the people... More

We recently took a brief tour. The staff is very knowledgeable and very local. They were able to make the place seem like a trip your grandmothers attic.

This is not the British Museum, but the three floors of well-curated exhibits in this historic school will give you a nice retrospective of St. Alban's place in history. Rooms are divided by subject, and those are military, medical, railroads, home life and the Smiths, who were the prominent family for 100 years. Some treasures include Benedict Arnold's cane, wax...

This past September , our town celebrated the 250th anniversary of the Civil War. The Historic Museum sponsored several events for the weekend. A re-enactment of the St. Albans Raid, the Northern most skirmish of the Civil War,and a Promenade followed by a Ball at the museum. All weekend members of our community dressed in period costume.
