We stopped here on a recommendation. It was $7. to get in. It was interesting to watch three women working on a quilt and I did enjoy eating a vanilla caramel. We bought some pecan crunch to take home that is actually made in Shipshewana. Oh, yes...the tour. Well, maybe it was because I was feeling tired, but I thought... More

The Center is a good place to gain understanding of the Amish Community seen all around Shipshewana. The tour is organized with parts of it accomplished in groups with a guide and other parts allowing for people to go at their own pace. The staff is knowledgeable and personable. Multimedia and interaction with staff enable much learning to take place.

I like this museum very much. First of all you go from theater to theater, watching short movies that are well informative and then you get to peruse several rooms on your own full of information that contrasts the Mennonites, Hutterites, Anabaptists and the Amish. Finally there are two more movies. Plan to spend maybe 2 hours it's very good

Very large and well done facility focused on the history of the Mennonite, Amish, and Anabaptist faiths. This is the place to gain an understanding of the similarities and differences between these closely related faiths. Longish tour is semi-guided by very polite and helpful docents.

This was the second Amish city, my husband and I visited and we wanted to know more about the people and their faith This place was really great. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. They had a lot of audio visual information and even a tornado room that shook and blew wind. We are so glad that we... More

It was good to get a better understanding of why people cloister and live happily because of their love of God and His creation.

This place is so interesting and informative that I have visited it 3 times over the years. There are different rooms representing various parts of history - each room has a 5-10 minute presentation. So you keep moving through history and their story, literally. It's really well done.

Tour was very informative, and quite long. The fee to see the tour and Amish History seems like it is priced too high.
