The Sheldon Museum is easy to find in the heart of the village of Middlebury, Vermont  at 1 Park Street.  If you’re traveling south on Main Street, you’ll cross the stone bridge over the Otter Creek. When you see a large cannon on your right (west), look across Cannon Park and there we are — the red brick building with columns next to Two Brothers Tavern. Free parking is available on the street (hour restrictions apply) and in the municipal parking lots, which are marked on the map below. View larger map
