Our Saturday bus trip took us to the renowned Shelburne Museum where we spent the day. Shelburne spreads over many acres, its several galleries and 25 historical structures housing first rate collections of fine and folk art as well as a private railcar, splendid firearms gallery and the spectacular steamboat “Ticonderogaâ€
