When the Museum opened in 1931, it was hailed as "a practical place of learning — a vibrant, ongoing educational institution for both children and adults." Today, the Museum houses Vermont's most comprehensive collection of art and anthropological artifacts. It presents innovative exhibitions of contemporary and historic art from around the world, complemented by year-round programming for all ages.
DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, THE MUSEUM IS IS ONLY OPEN TO THE STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT. WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.
The University of Vermont’s heightened protocols require that we operate only in support of the UVM community —students, faculty, and staff— throughout the spring 2021 semester. However, we look forward to welcoming you back to the Fleming as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will be further expanding our online experiences to enhance your enjoyment of the Fleming from home.
