Marion L. Phelps Memorial Building (Children's Museum)

Located in the Marion Phelps Building and inaugurated in 2014, our new Children’s Museum invites children and families to explore the past.

Step back in time and discover what life was like for the families that called Brome County home in the mid-19th century. How did children in the 1800s eat, learn and play? What kinds of work were they expected to do, and what responsibilities did they have at home? How was their experience different from your life, and how is it the same?

The Children’s Museum brings history to life with hands-on interactive exhibits meant to immerse visitors young and old in the world of 19thcentury Brome County. Cook dinner in a farmhouse kitchen, raise a barn, tend your vegetable patch, weave cloth and visit the general store, print shop and post office.

Please remember to follow the rules, clean up after yourself and, most importantly, have FUN!

All children MUST be supervised by an adult at all times. Some activities may not be suitable for children under the age of 3.
