IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that the Brome County Children’s Museum is CLOSED AS OF FEBRUARY 1 2018 will remain closed until further notice. As we are currently renovating the Old Fire Hall building and the work site encroaches on the Children’s Museum next door, we have made this decision with the safety and security of our children and their grownups in mind. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to hosting our valued visitors – the young, and young at heart – again soon.
