The Fleming Museum is located on the campus of the University of Vermont, which, chartered in 1791, is one of the nation's oldest universities. 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.
