Field Trip Next Week!

Off we go to the Shelburne Museum

What are some of the historical things that I will see on my visit?

Next week, we are going to go to the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont. This Museum is located on the western side of the state, just south of Burlington. It is a wonderful place to visit. This trip will be the culminating activity in our Vermont Studies Unit. You will see many of the things that we talked about this year. This museum has a collection of primary sources and artifacts that represent the state of Vermont and the New England area.

Other places to visit

You will also visit the Electra Havemeyer Webb Memorial Building. This building holds a fabulous collection of paintings and sculptures by really famous artists or what we call Masters. This collection is a "gem" for such a small state like Vermont to have.
