The Shelburne Museum is a very big outdoor museum featuring 39 buildings and a ship. It is located in Shelburne, Vermont and covers 45 acres worth of land.

The displays aren?t just the buildings and the ship, though. Inside these structures, there are other works of arts, which ranges from folk art, decorative art, furniture, paintings, quilts, and artifacts. 25 of the buildings are also historic.

The Shelburne Museum was started by Electra Havemeyer Webb. Trained by her parents to be a collector of artworks, she founded the museum in 1947. Her collections in the museum include a circus building, a 1950s house, the Castleton Jail, the old Shelburne General Store, the Diamond Barn, the Covered Bridge, an apothecary shop, and toy shop among many others.
