Shelburne Museum

Shelburne Museum

More than 150,000 works of art are on display on the 45-acre museum campus, spread throughout 39 exhibition buildings. Twenty-five of the buildings date from the 18th- and 19th- centuries, such as the 19th century lighthouse from Colchester Reef on Lake Champlain, the Shelburne village distillery, built in 1800 which is now home to the internationally known collection of quilts, and the restored 220-foot steamboat Ticonderoga, the only walking beam side-wheel passenger steamer still around.

We hope you enjoy our work.
