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.
Just a nice way to spend an hour or so, we had a great conversation with the gentleman building the dories. This man is an artist, the craftsmanship was second to none, and he takes great pride in his work, and likes to tell you about the history of dory building.
Make sure you get the 3 museum ticket then visit this one first. 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.

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.
Shelburne has a wonderful historic area, including three museums. My family really enjoyed all three, but particularly this one where we were able to get a personalized tour as well as meet and talk to the master dory builder. I would recommend buying the pass for all three museums. My whole family enjoyed it, including three generations.
We took a tour of this little museum, and were glad we did. I did not know that the history of dory building would be so interesting! the boats were beautiful!
