    This was a wonderful visit to see the history of the Shakers and how they lived in there commune. Well worth the visit!

    This is such a beautiful and peaceful place. Shaker architecture is lovely. The historical demonstrations were interactive and fun. We even had one of the demonstrators give us a free mini tour of the grounds. He showed us things that weren't open to the public, and we learned about a special stone they think is the heart of the village. I enjoyed this experience immensely. It is very easy to get into and out of the parking lot here. There is a lot of walking and many areas are not accessible to wheelchairs. I particularly liked the herb garden.

    An interesting look a long lost way of life. Plan on spending a few hours walking and taking in all the buildings. Make sure to use the tour guides, they add much more to the experience.

    This place was really very nice to visit. Our tour guide, Lois, was very informative and answered all questions we had. The tour is 1 hour 15 minutes but she went 15 minutes over due to being so detailed on her guide. The gift shop had lots of cute little things and they have furniture on the 2nd floor that the Shakers made from back in the day. Really cool to see with all the great detail. Definitely not a place for little ones, as the grounds are uneven, lots of walking and lots of things you can't touch.

    Very interesting look into the life and history of the Shakers who once lived in NH. My 12yo nephew enjoyed the print shop as well as the opportunity to ask many questions of the docent (a very patient retired teacher) who guided our tour. We also enjoyed our lunch in the cafe; both soup and sandwiches were good.
