Founded by pioneering collector Electra Havemeyer Webb in 1947, the Shelburne Museum
today boasts a collection of over 150,000 works in 38 buildings located on 45 acres of land in
Shelburne, to the south of Burlington. Spend a day wandering the beautifully landscaped
grounds and gardens of the Shelburne Museum all the while discovering what their vast array of
permanent and temporary exhibitions have to offer: from American folk art and paintings, to
costumes and decorative arts, to historical horse carriages. Be sure to explore the restored 220-
foot steamboat Ticonderonga – moved to the Shelburne Museum on land in 1955 – and discover
what life aboard the Ticonderoga was like in 1923, during its heyday as passenger steamer.
Don’t miss the many events held at the Shelburne as well, including the Ben and Jerry’s
Concerts on the Green!
