The Mission of Bennington Museum
Bennington Museum engages and transforms our visitors and our community by connecting them to our region’s diverse arts, rich history, and culture of innovation.
The Vision of Bennington Museum
Bennington Museum is a museum of art, history, and innovation. The museum collects, interprets, and celebrates the creativity of our region and of Vermont across time. We believe that by connecting people with real objects of art and history, and challenging them with complex ideas, we will excite the imagination, inspire innovation, and bring delight.
Our purpose is to create effective connections and community through art, history, and nature. To do this we tell and exchange stories focused on our collections and the culture of our region.
Our aspiration is that, through our collections and programs, people everywhere will come to value the stories of Vermont, the Bennington region, and the achievements of those who have lived here.
