Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury, Vermont

Today we take a look at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury, Vermont.

“The Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium was built in 1890 and was designed by Lambert Packard in the Richardson Romanesque style.  The building features a tower, corbel faces, eyebrow windows and rounded arches.  Given to the town by Franklin Fairbanks, son of Erastus and brother to Horace (who founded the Athenaeum), it is a true “cabinet of curiosities.”  A must see element is the wonderful barrel vaulted ceiling that runs the length of the building.  The inside and the collections are another must-see aspect.”
