Fodor's Expert Review Shelburne Museum

Shelburne Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice
Colchester Reef lighthouse, Shelburne, Vermont

You can trace much of New England's history simply by wandering through the 45 acres and 38 buildings of this museum. Some 25 buildings were relocated here, including an old-fashioned jail, an 1871 lighthouse, and a 220-foot steamboat, the Ticonderoga. The outstanding 150,000-object collection of art, design, and Americana consists of antique furniture, fine and folk art, quilts, trade signs, and weather vanes; there are also more than 200 carriages and sleighs. The Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education is open year-round with changing exhibitions and programs for kids and adults.
