General Info

Check out our Amenities and ECHO Floor Map here. Also we have a cafe located in the lobby that offers coffee, drinks, and a variety of lunch and snack items.

May thru early October, check out Champ’s Legendary Creemees! Stop by for locally-produced, refreshing treats on the waterfront. Flavors include chocolate, vanilla, maple, and more! Non-dairy sorbet 802 Bars are also offered. All proceeds go to supporting Vermont’s science and nature museum. 


ECHO has a parking lot right behind the Museum. Visitors can use our Pay & Display kiosk or ParkMobile. ECHO Members get a discounted rate. Click here for more ECHO parking information.


ECHO memberships are a great way to support the organization while visiting as often as you’d like for a single yearly fee. Through the ASTC Passport Program, members are also granted access to more than 300 museums around the globe, and discounts in ECHO’s Gift Shop, ECHO camps, birthdays, and parking. Learn more.
