In the quiet little town of Saint Johnsbury, Vermont, visitors can find the Victorian-inspired edifice, the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium. Opened in 1891 by industrialist and philanthropist Franklin Fairbanks, this museum houses the only public planetarium in Vermont. It also features the ?Eye in the Sky? weather gallery, where weather forecasts are relayed to radio stations and local papers.

The museum is divided into three departments: Historical, Natural Science, and Ethnological. Currently, the institution contains around 175,000 collections. The Natural Science department has 75,000 flora, fauna and natural resources. The Historical department houses up to 95,000 memorabilia and artifacts. Lastly, the Ethnological section has 5,000 items from all over the world.

The museum is open to all visitors year-round, Mondays to Sundays (visit schedule is posted in their website.)
