I really really like history, so most artifacts that predate my birth ('83) are interesting to me. That being said, there are about a half dozens rooms to look at some century old domestic items and then a little video on the shakers origin, which is a good little video, kinda a crazy little story on how the shakers came about. But I think for the average person, this place would be a bit underwhelming. I would have liked to get a nice tour of the whole house, but I have a feeling most of it was offices. Lovely place though, and the woman who worked the desk was very kind to me.
