Scenes from The Museum of Everyday Life, Glover, Vermont

On a cold and cloudy Monday morning in February 2023, Tom and I decided to take a day trip to Glover, Vermont to check out The Museum of Everyday Life. When we arrived after a three-hour trip, it appeared a small, unassuming outbuilding, but inside were a grand variety of obscure curiosities. I’ve never seen so many odd, but wonderful things all collected like this. Unfortunately, as it’s a self-service museum that’s not heated, I was only able to visit for a short time before the cold got to me.

I took about thirty photos, although it took me another session of uploading to get them to cooperate; they were fairly big files. I’ll revisit this post again to upload more. Also, I took some photos of the exterior with my Fujifilm professional camera, seen here:

Without further ado, here is a small sampling of what this curious, unusual, and perhaps entirely unique museum has to offer.

Here are Tom’s photos from the Museum of Everyday Life on that same day.

Tom and I plan to visit again. We did leave a five dollar donation and took five postcards in exchange, as that was what they suggested to take for that level of donation. They do change out exhibits about once a year, so when it warms up, we’ll be sure to visit again. It’s just that it takes about six hours of roundtrip travel, so we’ll likely plan to already be around Montpelier before we go again.

Are there any curious and obscure places you’ve visited recently? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
