Rokeby Museum on NewTV’s “Museum Open House”

Earlier this month, Rokeby Museum director Lindsay Hoput-Varner, Ph.D., spoke with Jay Sugarman, host of NewTV’s Museum Open House. Lindsay spoke about the history and mission of the museum and gave a behind-the-scenes tour of the property as well as highlighting our permanent exhibit, Free & Safe: The Underground Railroad in Vermont. She also spoke about the programs, events, and other opportunities that are available for visitors today.

Museum Open House features and highlights many of the outstanding museums throughout Massachusetts and New England. The main purpose of each program is to inform viewers about current and upcoming exhibits, various programs, resources, and other opportunities that are available to the general public.
