It has been awhile since I have visited the Shaker Museum but I recall have a very positive experience. The artifacts and "movies" they have on display are amazing. You enter into the world of the Shakers. The "village" as they call it is made up of beautiful houses that Shakers once occupied. They have some hands on items to see/touch/feel for the young ones. There is an old church on the grounds as well and you can stay at the Bed and Breakfast or visit the restaurant and they even have special occasions on the premises should you need a place for a party or reception.
