fruitlands museum walking trails photoTake a morning stroll over the land of Fruitlands Museum. Enjoy a peaceful walk through Fruitlands' varied landscapes on 3.2 miles of well-marked walking trails.

Experience meadow habitats on your way to the most stunning view of the Nashua River Valley. View bluebirds and butterflies up close with views of Mt. Monadnoc and Mt. Wachusett rising in the distance.

Fruitlands Museum inspires and educates through the art, nature and history of the New England.

Founded in 1914, the museum takes its name from a utopian community created by Bronson Alcott and Charles Lane in 1843 and includes the original farmhouse used by its members, a Shaker Museum, a Native American Museum and an American Art Museum that includes over 100 Hudson River School landscape paintings and a large collection of 19th century vernacular portraits.
