Go when the weathers nice and you can tour the last paddle boat to crude lake champlain while taking in its breathtaking views of the Adirondacks. You can also see cool collections of antique toys, quilts, amazing gardens, great impressionist art and the works longest carved circus parade! Shelburne museum is a must do!!

We visit the museum every time we are in the Burlington area. The grounds are splendid. The exhibits are first rate. The collection is astounding. It is wonderful to be able to see the collection of one of the great ladies of our time.

As I remember, it's either 45 buildings on 35 acres, or 35 buildings on 45 acres. In any case, at the Shelburne Museum, you will see things... More

This vast collection of Americana is a real gem. There is something to interest visitors of any age. Also, with the addition of the new building they are able to display very impressive traveling exhibits.
