  • Find articles written by Bentley and additional resource about snowflakes
  • Explore the Bentley Exhibit

Select “Bentley Exhibit” then scroll down to the bottom of the page to find “Snowflake Display” to see images of Bentley’s snowflakes. Click on the snowflakes to enlarge them so you can see the amazing details.

Return to the “Bentley Exhibit” page and check out the virtual tour of the Jericho Historical Society’s Bentley Exhibit in Jericho, Vermont. Click on the frames on the wall to get a closer look at the displays. Before leaving the website, play the game to see if you can match the flakes.
