ECHO's building on the Lake Champlain waterfront and child learning how to build circuits

ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain is Vermont's science and nature museum on the Burlington waterfront. Discover over 100 interactive family experiences, 70 live species, seasonal changing exhibits, and the Northfield Savings Bank Theater showing 3D science and nature films daily.

Our Museum Store carries a wide variety of educational toys, kits, and name brand toys such as DJECO, Eeboo, Melissa and Doug, and Green Toys both onsite at the Museum and online. All purchases support our educational mission — to inspire and engage families in the joy of scientific discovery, wonder of nature, and care of Lake Champlain.
