Extremely Quirky Destinations For Santa Clarita Residents To Visit – Shelburne Museum

Why visit a regular museum when there are a slew of unusual places to visit, such as the Shelburne Museum, where they bring history to life in a unique way, waiting to be discovered?

In the 48th part of a multi-part series, KHTS uncovers unusual destinations Santa Clarita residents can visit for their “quirky” getaway.

This week takes us to the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.

The museum’s 45-acre campus includes 39 buildings and 25 relocated historic structures. The Round Barn, with its Shaker style, the General Store, the carousel and the 220-foot sidewheel steamboat Ticonderoga, are some of the most beloved campus attractions. 

The 22 gardens are a sight to behold and guests love taking leisurely strolls through them. Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, Grandma Moses, John Singleton Copley and countless more American artists have important works on display at Webb Gallery, while the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education hosts rotating exhibitions.

Featuring rotating exhibitions of interesting and unusual artifacts, concepts and photographs, the Shelburne Museum is a dynamic and ever-evolving venue for visitors.

The Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education presents special exhibitions that connect and consider four centuries of American art and design in a fresh, modern setting.

Other temporary exhibitions are located all over the Museum grounds. Don’t miss out on these limited-time exhibits.

In addition to the numerous things to see on site, the Shelburne Museum offers an online exhibit so that people from around the world can enjoy the museum’s artifacts.

On top of that, the Shelburne Museum will be hosting a variety of live performances and music throughout the 2024 season. Countless events take place on their picturesque grounds and rolling hills, including Ben and Jerry’s Concerts on the Green, Free First Friday Eves and performances by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, among many others. 

Throughout the summer, the Shelburne Museum hosts diverse performances that showcase Vermont’s rich arts scene.

Concerts at the Shelburne Museum cater to all community members, whether it’s a Ben & Jerry’s Concert on the Green or favorite local musicians performing on Free First Friday Eves or Community Day.
