Shelburne Museum

6000 Shelburne Rd.
Burlington, VT, 05482, United States
TEL: (802) 985-3346

For many visitors, this 45-acre museum feels more like a wonderland than a museum, thanks mainly to the village-like layout that incorporates 25 historic buildings relocated here by founder and American folk art collector Electra Havemeyer Webb. Highlights include a lighthouse, jail, covered bridge, and the 220-foot steamboat Ticonderoga, which ferried passengers on Lake Champlain for 47 years. Landscapes by John Singleton Copley, Andrew Wyeth, and Grandma Moses comprise the museum’s collection of 19th- and 20th- century paintings, and its 400-plus-piece collection of 18th and 19th century quilts is one of the largest of its kind in the country. In summer, the 20 flower gardens make the Shelburne a hotspot for botany enthusiasts.
