Tours for Special Audiences

Sponsorship and Support

Tours will resume in 2015.

To help make our collections, exhibitions, and grounds accessible to all visitors, Shelburne Museum has developed programming designed for audiences with special needs.

Art at Hand

Art at Hand tours allow visitors who are blind or visually impaired to explore Shelburne Museum with specially trained guides. Participants will visit a gallery space, hear detailed descriptions of works of art, and feel tactile pieces related to our collections.

Tours are free, but pre-registration is required. Registrations are accepted by telephone or mail on a first-come, first-served basis. Register by telephone (802) 985-3346 x3393. Register by mail by downloading the registration form (PDF) and mailing it to:

Art at Hand is supported by the Shelburne Area Lions, the Colchester Lions Club, the Essex Lions Club and the Vermont Lions Charities on behalf of Vermont Lions District 45.

Mornings at the Museum

Shelburne Museum offers special programming to residents at local care facilities that serve the needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s disease. Residents, their caregivers, and family members participate in facilitated tours and discussions of Museum exhibits.
