We are headed out of Vermont! While staying on the incredible Lake Champlain, we visited the Shelburne Museum, which is a few minutes outside of Burlington. I hesitate to even call this place a museum- it is SO much more! Set up in a variety of historical buildings that were moved to the site, this museum houses everything from a vintage steam ship to a collection of automatons. Ridiculous!
Here’s a life size elephant sculpture made from recycled materials. Neato! This lovely fellow was part of the circus collection, which included a scale model of a circus parade that stretched over 500 feet!
Some robots as part of the steampunk and time machines exhibit. There is really way too much to take in here… We spent hours at the place and could have easily spent the whole day there. It is definitely worth visiting if you are into unique Americana!
