A Year at the Museum 

Arts: Shelburne Museum announces new arts and education center

kidsbeat1-3.jpg

There's just one problem with the Shelburne Museum: It's only open to the public between May and October, limiting opportunities for kids to take the helm of the restored steamship Ticonderoga, peer into the exquisitely decorated of dollhouses, or run up and down the museum's expansive fields. Schools trips are almost impossible. Not anymore. The Shelburne Museum recently announced plans to construct a 16,000 square-foot, LEED-certified Center for Art and Education, which in addition to providing more gallery space will house an auditorium and classrooms. Kids and adults will soon benefit from art-making programs all year round. Plus, the whole museum is getting a fiber-optic upgrade, so your tech-savvy kids will feel right at home. — M.J.

The Center for Art and Education at Shelburne Museum: Construction is set to begin next year, with the center opening in 2013. Info, 985-3346, shelburnemuseum.org.
