Open, spacious design of a visitor center. Complete with helpful staff for all things New Harmony and Posey county. Clean bathrooms, gift shop and videos to fully introduce the Harmonist history.

Building is iconic but it’s best features (nice outdoor stairs and decks) are closed ! The gift store is nice and the film about New Harmony is interesting. The building itself is a disappointment.
