  • A nice little spot with lots of interesting history told through its buildings, artifacts, and stories. Very reasonably priced considering you can spend hours there, and they have a great gift shop...

  • Absolutely beautiful setting in the rolling green fields of rural Kentucky! Visitor Center was nice with a welcoming staff. We watched a movie of the Shaker Village and then did the self guided tour....  more

  • Very interesting history of the Shaker community. Price of admission includes a movie with some history. Lots of stairs and a distance between buildings...if you have any issues with mobility. You could easily spend a couple of hours in all of the buildings and on the grounds. Lots of educational signage. Go early while the buildings are still cool inside.
  • Highly recommend! We took a day trip over here from the Mammoth Cave area and I'm so glad we did. Several buildings have been restored and available to tour. The Centre House alone is worth it. Tours are self guided and you can go at your own pace.
