Just outside Lenox, Tanglewood is the summer home of the world's largest orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Thousands of visitors travel to this renowned 200-acre estate every summer to enjoy the orchestra and other world famous performers.

Members of a communal, religious society known as Shakers lived here from 1790 to 1960. The village inhabitants were very prosperous, as they made their living farming, selling seeds and herbs, making medicines, and producing crafts. Today the museum contains twenty of the original buildings, gardens, and an historic working farm. The museum cleverly reflects the Shakers philosophy of life - "the virtues of simplicity, purity and perfection".
