The Cornish Colony Museum is located in Windsor, Vermont. It is an art museum and educational institution, dedicated to displaying and teaching about the creative individuals who lived and worked in the Cornish Art Colony. The Cornish Colony Museum is operated by The Cornish Colony Museum of Windsor Vermont, a 501(c)3 non-profit educational corporation.
The Cornish Colony Museum was established in 1998, in Cornish, New Hampshire. The Museum originally occupied Mastlands, a 19th century Cornish Colony house. In 2005, the Cornish Colony Museum relocated to Windsor, Vermont, and is located in the old Windsor firehouse.
The museum routinely puts on two exhibits a year, focusing on both the Cornish Art Colony artists, and on modern artists in the area. The Cornish Colony Museum regularly participates in the local "Meet the Artist" series, and has hosted artist George Tooker, and children's illustrators Ilse Plume and John Stadler.
