The National Museum of the Morgan Horse is dedicated to preserving the history of the Morgan Horse, an All-American equine breed that played an important role in the country?s history. The Morgan horse breed can be traced all the way back to Figure, a now famous stallion born in 1789 and was raised and bred by Justin Morgan in Vermont.

Besides the various permanent and changing exhibits of the museum, there is also a research library as well as an archives section available on an appointment basis for serious researchers. Information sheets about the museum?s exhibits are, however, also offered for free together with other educational materials. For those interested in purchasing souvenirs and related research materials about the Morgan breed, the museum?s in-site store has lots to offer. Its collection of gifts and research materials are quite rare. For souvenirs, visitors may purchase reproduction woodcuts, Historic Morgan postcards, trotting horse pins, and slate trivets. For museum publications, there are books available such as Donald (one of the volumes that make up the Francis Bryant Collection), D.C. Linsley?s Morgan Horses and Calvin Hanson?s The Morgan Horse Foundation ? A Computerized Analysis.
