New England Maple Museum

The New England Maple Museum reveals the mysteries of the maple tree and the sugar it produces. Students will take a trip through a 200-year history of maple sugaring beginning with the Native American discovery of sweet syrup. This history is brought to life with 100 feet of hand-painted murals, sugaring artifacts, and historical photographs. The museum houses the most complete collection of sugaring artifacts in existence, from an ancient block of wood used for sap collecting to a modern plastic pipeline. Students can complete their trip by sampling various maple syrups in the tasting room.
