Welcome to the Saint Albans Museum!
Our mission is to preserve and share the history and heritage of St. Albans, Franklin County, and northwestern Vermont through historical exhibitions, educational programs, arts/music performances, and special events for all ages and interests.
Pardon our virtual dust – SAM is currently updating our website to better serve our mission and the community. We welcome any suggestions you may have for the museum in 2021 and beyond. Take a moment to complete a brief 5-question survey – help us share the past and plan for the future. Start here.
Keeping the health and well-being of our volunteers, staff, and guests in mind – SAM has made the difficult but necessary decision to remain temporarily closed to the public. However, we will continue to document and share our local history. Please stay in touch via our website and social media we as introduce new online educational programming and digital exhibitions/tours which will allow SAM to serve both our community and our mission.
We appreciate your support…don’t forget to order your exclusive “Vintage St. Albans” t-shirt – all proceeds will benefit our nonprofit mission and educational programming.
SAM is also reflecting/responding to the Black Lives Matter movement with a recommitment to diversity and inclusion in our exhibitions, publications, and research. Read our full statement here.
