I have honestly never visited a small museum that was so well organized. Several small rooms are your first stops, accompanied by a docent that talks you through the beginning of the Anabaptist movement. You are free to roam the remainder of the museum which covers the complete history of this religious movement from its early days in Germany &... More

I came to Shipshewana as I am very interested in the Amish culture, this is one of the only museums in the town and it's worth the visit. It's not expensive to enter and it's a great place to learn about the early persecution of Christians etc. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone in the nearby area!

This should have been our first stop. Mostly video and recordings at the first half of the museum that was very nicely done. At the end of the museum it goes into detail about the differences between the Amish and the Mennonites. Can't say enough wonderful things about this museum!!! Answered all of our questions and then some.

Well displayed museum about the the history of the early persecution of Christians. Interesting to learn about the Anabaptist & how the different belief systems of the Mennonites, Hutterites, & Amish were formed.

I was a bit disappointed in this museum because it focused on the plight of the Amish in Europe before coming here. I was looking for more of the why do they answers and the guides would look at the question and either beat around the bush or change the subject. It seems more like a religious propaganda provider more... More

A little to heavy on the early Christians persecution- dungeon and torture- the only history is at the end for the Mennonites and amish and not much at that

We really enjoyed our visit. Learned a lot of how their religion fit into history and saw many things we did not expect. Go you will not be sorry we did spend a hour and half there wished we had more time.

This is a very well done and informative scenic explanation of the Amish story. My husband and I thought we knew a lot about their culture but there was much more to be told. The museum is visitor friendly and a good study in the diverse cultures here in America.

This is located just across a covered bridge from Farmstead Inn. Very interesting & informative. You do have to go from room to room to watch a short movie clip each time. We all came away with a better understanding of both the Amish & the Mennoites way of life. Shopping area across the street and also a short distance... More
