We love museums so decided to check this our. The lady gave us a paper for a self-guided tour. We could not go in some of the buildings but there is still plenty to see.

A five plus story stone building dominating a campus in a very rural setting very intriguing, made all very explainable by an engaging and well informed guide. Definitely worth a detour and tour.

What a wonderful surprise. We were fortunate in having the director of the facility as our guide and so were able to pepper him with questions. I knew little about this religious "sect" but left full of both knowledge and admiration. The built in drawers and huge walk-in cupboards were marvellous. The history chart in the school is really interesting... More

The Shaker Museum is a very nice museum--I wish we'd had more time to spend there. You should allow at least a couple of hours to make sure you see everything. They start with a nice film that provides good background and history. Educational stop--wish we could have stayed longer.

I took the guided tour and learned a lot of interesting facts about the Shakers and how they lived. The guide was very informed and the furnishing and equipment are original. They have different models of equipment as they updated things over the years.

Kate at the Enfield Shaker Museum was a very understanding and patient tour guide for a couple of people both fascinated with the Shaker way of living and their beliefs, but also very naive. Her in-depth knowledge of the Enfield community, the building design and construction and their crafts and industry gave us a practical glimpse into an innovative and... More

We went to Enfield early this month (July 2014). It was a complete waste of time. We've been to Canterbury (excellent) and Hancock in Massachusetts. Looked forward to Enfield - but it was awful. Person in museum shop didn't know anything - only one building to tour - no place to eat - very small shop and very few items... More

We learnt a lot. It was very interesting, and the knowledgable staff are obviously enthusiastic about their involvement, which makes it even better to hear their comments.
