shelburne museum

We went to the home school day here at Shelburne museum. They had different workshops throughout the day. Some of the things we learned about were contra dancing, the food chain, bartering goods, a printing press, pulleys, and were even judges sending criminals to jail.

The museum is made up of old buildings that were meant for destruction but instead were saved and all moved to these beautiful grounds. After all the workshops we just went for a walk to check out all the other buildings. They each had a theme, such as circus, blacksmith, art galleries, a lighthouse, a gun collection, vintage toys, etc. The shuttle tour guide(because you know we had to try it our) summed it up pretty nicely. It is a collection of collections. We thought of how much our Grammy would enjoy it- a visit during the summer is needed though since it is only open May- October(hint, hint).

We ended the day with several rides on the carousel. The big boys were so excited for Harkin to go on it. It was a long day but full of fun and excitement.
