Museum ABCs: Goats in the Museum!?!

There are a lot of farm animals roaming the Bennington Museum in different works of art. Are the goats in a painting? In a photograph? Or even on a wall? They might be Billy Goats Gruff! We will find them, listen to  stories about them, and make a goat friend to take home to add to your animal collections. (Image: Altered image of Jill Van Orden, Goat, paper maché and wood.)


The Museum ABCs program is a collaboration between Bennington Museum and the Bennington Free Library. The program is intended for children ages 3 to 5 (siblings welcome) and their adult companions and supports early literacy and a lifelong love of museums and learning. Museum ABCs is offered at no charge to participants, thanks to generous support from the A.D. Henderson Foundation, Stewart’s Shops and The Bank of Bennington,
