Shelburne is a super unique little town. If you love history, old buildings, and interesting people.. this town is for you. Make sure you stop by the Museum's "Dory Shop," where they still make boats the same way they did 150 years ago.

We had a nice tour of the dory shop and also chatted with the dory maker as well.It gives you a glimpse of the past.We did the 3 museum ticket plan.It is nice to see what went on in years gone by.

Start with the 5 minute film as unless you are already an expert on Dory building it gives you the essential information to ensure you get the most from your visit. The staff were all very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly and the little shop sells proper local... 更多
I recently revised the Dory Shop Museum. Great examples of hand made dories that were built on site. The tools are present, as well as, the the actual dories. Painted to have the look of the day.
