  • deepening our audiences’ connection with the Museum through hands-on participation
  • incorporating the Shaker ideals of order, organization, frugality, simplicity, community, and diversity into our operations
  • collaborating with other Shaker historic sites and nonprofit organizations to ensure best practices
