Bill was knowledgeable and welcoming at the entrance. What a beautiful place to visit and learn about a unique community. My 16, 14 and 9 year olds were all interested and loved the hands on room.

We had a great time touring the village. The numerous displays were fascinating and very informative. It took us a couple of hours to complete our tour, and we could have spent even more time. We definitely recommend this attraction for anyone in the area looking for a look at a nicely preserved historical site.

South Union Shaker Village presents a rich and vigorous approach to an important part of American religious history. The Village should be a must see when touring Kentucky

Amazing place!! Lots of signage for self tours. My 5 yo and I had so much fun exploring in the men's dorm room - hands on exhibit. Very cool to be able to step back in history and image what daily life would have been like. They also have a fabulous gift shop.
