Rokeby Museum offers visitors three exhibit experiences
Free & Safe: The Underground Railroad in Vermont is a permanent installation on the second floor of the Education Center.
A new, temporary exhibit is crafted each year to explore some aspect of the site’s history and to showcase part of the Museum’s rich and diverse collection. Seasonal exhibits are mounted in the Jane Williamson Gallery.
Rokeby Museum’s 2021 season exhibit, A Modern Artist: The Commercial Art of Rachael Robinson Elmer, explores the career of Rachael Robinson Elmer (1878–1919) and her early twentieth-century success as a professional illustrator. Exhibit is open May 30–October 24, 2021.

Most of the Museum’s collection is on permanent “exhibit” in the Historic Robinson Home. Its seven rooms are densely furnished with furniture, textiles, lighting, books, photographs, and art — and all owned by the Robinsons.
Due to ongoing preservation work in 2021, tours of the historic home are not available at this time, but outside guided site tours are available every Friday–Monday, 11 am and 2 pm OR by appointment. Tours last about 45 minutes.
