  • This is an outstanding hidden gem! All of the Shaker properties are well done; however, this one is particularly peaceful and lovely. The gorgeous lands, magnificent buildings and tranquil atmosphere ...  more »
  • Just okay. Not recommended for young kids . Bored . Lots of steps if you legs are shaky, not recommended. No activities , no crafts .. very clean bathrooms.  more »
  • We came upon this museum unexpectedly. Felt that we got the spirit of the Shakers, but costumed people would be even better to evoke the past. Nice gift shop. Helpful staff.  more »

  • Very nice and informative! Enjoyed seeing the historical buildings. Will definitely go again when I have more time. The staff was very friendly. It is not a big museum and more for a Sunday drive, out-of-the-way adventure. For better learning experience, I would still visit the exhibit in Pleasant View, KY over this one, especially if I were homeschooling, taking a group, etc.
  • Lovely setting and grounds. Informative staff but basically a self guided location.
  • A wonderful place to see. These are magnificent buildings.
  • Was somewhat interesting. The introductory movie was good, but the grounds weren't all that interesting. WOuld have been better if there were a few docents around to give information.
  • Loved walking through the house and seeing all the memorabilia of that time. Just a beautiful piece of property. I find the history of the Shaker's very interesting.
