The village is well run and plan on spending at least a few hours there to see all the buildings. The machine shop was extremely worthwhile as a staff member showed how they used hydro power to run items like a band saw and other carpentry tools. The round stone barn is huge and a staff member will explain how it was built and the features that were incorporated in the design. You will get see many farm animals, vegetable and herb gardens, and learn about the shakers history. They have a café where they serve lunch on the property from 11 AM to 2PM. We had purchased a multi museum properties pass which is well worth it if you are staying a couple of days in the area.
