They presented a nice history lesson about where the Amish and Mennonite came from. My husband and I found it interesting that they came from the Anabaptist. They presented their beliefs in a nice way.

Loved the volunteers who provided a bit of local history. Especially liked that they led us from one room to the other as the building was huge. Also learned of the settlements in other states.

Just a great place for a family to visit, lot's to see and experience how the Amish live and earn a living. Great Restaurants and Motels. Everything is very clean. For a laid back get-a-way this is the place to go. However almost everything is closed on Sunday's

This was very interesting to me because of my Amish ancestry. If you don't have a personal connection, maybe not quite as interesting. We spent lots of time there. I think it would be boring for kids though.

Tons of history about Amish in the past but NOTHING about Amish of today. Who cares about 1500's, how about 2014 ?? Nice gift shop and beautiful grounds.

It was a last minute decision that brought me and my travelling companion into the heart of Amish country last week. This time of year is unbelievably beautiful with the trees all changing into splashes of bright reds, stunning oranges, yellows in a crazy quilt of beauty. The house is one of those that appears to be bigger on the... More

I'm really interested in the History of the Amish, and this is were I found the information I needed, just picking up new information is always exciting for me. I know about Martin Luther now and also the role he played in Christianity. I'm sure glad this place is around!!!
