  • Very nice facility with a wealth of information on Amish and Mennonite culture. Beautifully presented artifacts, old and new. Detailed explanations and myth-busting help the visitor understand the people and their history. There are several short films and guided tours are available as well. There appears to be a large appointment-only library for advanced research. There are also additional out building available for tours. I found this to be a superior facility and staff. Highly recommend.
  • A must see for visitors. Tours are about every 30 minutes. The guide is a local Amish man that worked as a teacher for 24 years. He is very knowledgeable and down to earth. Tour of the school room and barn is $8 for an adult ticket. We did not get the mural tour, but the mural itself is an amazing work of art. It is outside and free.
  • Loved it. We did the tour and the painted mural. Well worth the money!!! Our guide was great she answered a lot of questions we had and was helpful to us. The mural is amazing. Definitely worth the price. Price was very reasonable!
  • A great place to learn about the history of Amish. I think it will be better if I can have a chance to experience Amish living style, like visiting a farm or letting an Amish share some life experience.
  • Excellent wealth of information on Amish & Mennonite history. The mural with a timeline from Christ to late 20th century is breath-taking...a truly fantastic piece of art!
