  • Donate to the Collection: Bennington Museum began collecting objects in 1852. It now holds over 40,000 objects in its permanent collection. The vast majority of these have been donated by members of our community. We collect objects, artwork, photographs, documents, and books related to local history, art, and culture. Our collections focus on Bennington and the surrounding region, including adjacent areas of Massachusetts, New York State, and New Hampshire, as well as southern Vermont and the state as a whole.
  • Support the Collection: Collections stewardship requires considerable resources of space, materials, and personnel. We are very grateful to donors who understand this “big picture” and contribute funds to support the preservation and accessibility of collections.
  • Support a Special Initiative: In any given year, Bennington Museum is working on a lot of projects. Many of these projects are time sensitive, unexpected, or revolve around grants we have received that only cover a portion of a project’s cost. While your donation to the annual fund can be used to cover general operating expenses, including special projects, sometimes we find that our donors want to make a specific statement with their gifts or go the extra mile in support of an important cause that sparks their interest.

Volunteer: There is a place for you at Bennington Museum! Thank you for your interest in joining our family at Bennington Museum. Opportunities for volunteers exist in almost every department, from curatorial and collections to marketing, education, and the museum shop. Some volunteers are with us seasonally, some a few hours a week, others on an “as needed” basis.
