The Enfield Shaker Museum is a nonprofit, membership organization dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Enfield, New Hampshire Shakers. Since opening in 1986, the Museum has developed educational exhibits and programs designed to invite active participation in learning about the extraordinary people who once lived and worked there. The Shakers built more than 200 buildings (including the Great Stone Dwelling, the largest Shaker dwelling ever built), farmed over 3,000 acres of fertile land, educated children in model schools, and followed the "Shaker Way" of worship at this site.

The museum offers year-round opportunities for families and individuals, including a full schedule of events, workshops, tours, exhibits, and craft demonstrations. Visitors can view 13 Shaker buildings on a self-guided tour, take in the exquisite sights and smells of our Shaker Gardens, watch skilled artisans demonstrate their traditional crafts, learn the story of the Enfield Shakers through exhibits of their furniture, tools, clothing, and historic photographs; and browse through the Shaker Store.
