There is a reason why Shelburne Museum welcomes thousands of school children each year—it is an incredibly rich resource for learning about American history, industry, culture, and art. Our guided workshops, self-guided tours, and custom-designed programs are all about close looking, critical thinking, and nurturing creativity and art appreciation. In the hands of our lively teaching staff, our collections become tools for learning, exploration, and self-expression. Educators who connect with Shelburne Museum will have the opportunity to expand their own understanding of the stories our collections have to tell and the ways that art and material culture can support classroom learning. We welcome public, private, and homeschool students in grades pre-K to 12 and beyond.
