Fall 2015

Pack your bags for an educational adventure at Shelburne Museum!

Passport to Learning is an exciting series of eight interactive workshops for students in grades K-8 that meet educational standards from Vermont’s Framework of Standards and Grade Expectations/Common Core State Standards and introduces students to concepts and themes in art, language arts, math, science, and social studies through a facilitated exploration of Shelburne Museum.

  • We offer Passport to Learning each spring and fall. We are currently accepting reservations for September 21, 2015 through October 22, 2015.  Monday, October 12 is reserved exclusively for homeschooling families.
  • We can accommodate up to 200 students per day.
  • Group arrivals are staggered to aid traffic flow through the workshops.
  • Workshops run concurrently from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The last workshop session of the day begins at 1:30 p.m.
  • Workshops begin promptly on the half hour.
  • Each workshop closes for a 30-minute break during the day.
  • Workshops run on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Workshops can accommodate between 10 and 20 students at a time. We encourage classrooms to divide into small groups of 4 to 6 students each, with at least one chaperone per group.
  • You may choose to complete as few or as many workshops as you would like. We recommend that students in grades K-2 attend 2-3 workshops and students in grades 3-8 attend 3-5 workshops in a visit.
  • Every student receives a passport upon arrival. At the completion of a workshop each student receives a stamp in his or her passport.
  • Every student receives a pass to return to the Museum for free with one paid adult.


On select days this fall we will be offering a unique Passport to Learning experience for smaller groups. Upon your arrival, a Passport to Learning guide will greet you at the Museum store. Your groups will then be assigned individual guides to lead you through our Passport to Learning workshops. Together, you and your personal Museum educator will decide how you structure your Passport to Learning experience, based on your particular interests.


Passport to Learning costs $5 per student and $5 per chaperone including children under the age of five. School staff or one parent per home-schooled family are admitted free. Please note that if you are a home-school family arriving before 10 a.m., you must pay with cash or a check.
