#1 Shelburne Museum

From weathervanes, quilts and American art to transplanted 1950s era homes, a railroad station and a fully outfitted steamboat, the Shelburne Museum really does have a little of everything on display. Nearly 40 buildings, filled with various exhibits, span the museum's 45 acres. There's even a respectable collection of impressionist paintings, featuring the works of Degas, Cassatt, Manet and Monet.

Recent visitors were equally impressed with the museum's artifacts as they were with its grounds.
