Opening May 15


We miss you. Yet, in the interest of doing what’s best for our visitors and staff, we have made the difficult decision to delay Baby Animals and our season opening to Friday, May 15. The good news is that the animals are thriving. We will continue to post scheduling updates as needed. Thank you for your patience and support.

A living history museum in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Hancock Shaker Village brings the Shaker story to life and preserves it for future generations.
