From basements to attics, our All Access tour offers you the chance to get past those “Museum Staff Only” signs and peek into the nooks and crannies of rarely seen areas of our Laundry & Machine Shop, Brethren’s Shop and Trustees Office & Store. Get behind the scenes in some of HSV’s most significant historic buildings…
See the Village through the eyes of a Shaker child, from how they lived and played to where they went to school! Don a Shaker bonnet or straw hat and walk in the footsteps of the children who lived at Hancock, including a visit to the Brick Dwelling, Brethrens’ and Sister’s Shops, Schoolhouse, and the Round Stone Barn…
During Baby Animals (April 13-May 5), get up close and personal with the animals on this special tour, which begins with a wagon ride to the 1910 barn where you’ll meet the newborns in a private area reserved just for you! Help at feeding time, and hold and pet some of the babies! A photo will be taken to commemorate your visit, and a gift bag will be waiting in the gift shop.
