To enrich people’s lives through art, history, and culture.
To broaden our audience, engage their curiosity, animate their creativity, and give them an extraordinary, educational museum experience.
We envision Shelburne Museum as a nationally significant institution that is intellectually vibrant, financially sustainable, and that maintains a special commitment to its Vermont community. It seeks to provide visitors with stimulating experiences reflecting the highest standards of scholarship and the intelligence, whimsy, and courage of Electra Havemeyer Webb.
A deeper look at our ongoing commitment to the care of our collections can be found in Shelburne Museum’s Collections Management Policy.
