Rokeby Museum’s Visitors Center and Historic Farm Outbuildings are open for the season!
Exploring the Site — Guided Tours, Outbuildings, Hiking Trails
Volunteers run the guided tours at Rokeby. We work hard to ensure a tour guide is on site but please call in advance to ensure tours are running the day of your visit. The Historic Robinson Home is undergoing preservation work therefore tours are currently entirely outside and held rain or shine. Picnic tables in the yard behind the house are available for lunch.
The hiking trails are open daylight hours year round. An interpretive brochure for the trails is available at the reception desk. Please note — A portion of Rokeby’s trails are closed during mud season. Please follow signage and help protect our trails.

You can also find children’s gifts, Vermont-made products, tees, mugs, cards and prints. We are continuously updating our inventory, and often offer products relating to our current special exhibits.
