Shelburne Museum in Burlington, Vermont a must see

Located about ten minutes south of Burlington, the Shelburne is a sprawling museum of countless buildings and collections, spanning high European and American Art to crafts such as Quilts.

It took the Culture Vulture and the Mrs. two days to take in just over half of the exhibits, both the current exhibits -- Ansel Adams, Amercian Maritime Art - and permanent collections, such as the paintings in the Havemeyer House and the so-called Crazy Quilts.

The admission fee is a bit stiff, but it's good for two days.

I would say that north of Boston, this is flat-out the best museum.
