Learned a lot, maybe more than we wanted to about the whole evolution and fragmenting of the Anabaptists, but learn we did. was kind of odd how you are directd by a guide from room to room..seems an orchestrated effortto tell you the story they want you to see. You arent on your own until the very end of the... More

We found this very helpful in learning about the Amish And Mennonite culture. You go from room to room and each was interesting. Would not recommend for children under 8 as they will get bored sitting in the darkened rooms for approximately an hour. A definate must do to enrich your trip.

We were expecting more a look into Amish life. Instead what we got was a history of the Amish over the centuries. We had a 6 year old child with us who was pretty bored. It was well presented, but not what we were hoping to see. They have a great gift shop.

If part of your trip to Shipshewana is to learn about the Mennonites and Amish, then you need to make time to visit here. Plan to stay about 1.5-2 hours, but that time will go by quickly. Even children shouldn't lose their attention since you are escorted from room to room, and each room tells you a little more about... More

History of the Mennonites, Hittites and Amish. Tour and exhibits take about ninety minutes. Little gift shop is a bit overpriced.

We enjoyed learning more about the Mennonite and the Amish. A very good tour that allows for hands on learning and visual experiences. Allow 2 hours minimum.
