We loved Shelburne Museum. You can wander all day to several buildings and see great artwork and over 300,000 items in a very eclectic museum!

This museum is a collection of collections. It may look like there is no rhyme or reason to the exhibits as they are an eclectic mix of whatever struck the fancy of Electra Havemeyer Webb, but the museum is really a fascinating place. Straight razors,...More

You can spend days here....the grounds are beautiful and the exhibits so interesting. We only had a few hours, so only scratched the surface, but loved the round barn, circus museum, steamboat the the Webb memorial building.

Rarely is a museum as impressive as the Shelburne Museum. There are 39 buildings on 45 acres of well manicured grounds. Several staff members refered to the museum as a collection of collections. So true! We saw numerous, extensive collections: artwork, dolls, decoys, guns, carriages,...More

We had ridden on the Ticonderoga on water and visited it at the Museum! Both were wonderful experiences for my husband and myself!

This museum deserves an entire day's visit and the ticket you purchase is good for the following day, which you will need to finish seeing the majority of this place. The grounds are beautiful but the collections are amazing...fine art, folkloric art, decorative art as...More

The 740 Park Avenue Apartment with its Impressionist Art collection intact is amazing. I have never seen so many Mary Cassatt paintings in one place!

Loved the history! The trolley was a great feature to use to get around. The restaurant was pricey. Lots of restrooms.

"Museum" doesn't begin to do justice to what this place, just south of Burlington, is all about. Yes, it does have several art museums with an eclectic collection of U.S. and European art, but it is much more than that. Shelburne is a uniquely American,...More
