Give it at least two hours to go through this very informative museum. There was no one in our group of 3 when we visited on a Friday afternoon.

This was our second visit here. Brought our niece who was visiting from Italy since she was interested in the story of the Anabaptists. It is done nicely, with a combination of tour guide explaining various pieces of their history, to more interactive displays, and self directed aspects as well. It is about an hour and ½ to go through... More

Many come to Shipshewana to see the Amish and learn about this unique culture. Don't miss Menno-Hof. It provides an interesting look in to the historic background of both the Amish and Mennonite heritage. Well worth the time.

The is a great place to learn all about how the Mennonites formed back to 1500. The history traces back how the people separated from the State because of baptism. Many were persecuted for their faith. You also learn how the Amish formed by breaking away from the Mennonites because they believed that the Mennonites were "too loose" morally. The... More

A visit to Shipshewana IN is incomplete without a visit to this interactive museum. Best six and a half bucks and two hours of our visit. Learn all about those curious folks, who they are, where they came from and why they choose the life they lead. A big thank you to all the volunteers who enriched our visit to... More

Excellent depiction of how the Amish community evolved, and how their history differed from the Mennonites and Hutterites and how they escaped the injustices of life in Europe. The replica of the boat and the story of crossing the Atlantic was really moving, and the individual stories were fun. The children enjoyed the tornado experience and realized how frightening it...

The best way to get the most out of a trip to Shipshewama is to understand the development of the Amish. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about their development until I went through this tour. It is well presented and informative and structured for all ages.

This impressively built attraction answered a lot of questions for us. We were saddened that so much suffering resulted from REFORMation and adjustments to human tradition. We are proponents of RESTORation of the church Christ died for. They objected to infant baptism and rightly so--to the death even, but baptism by immersion was not mentioned at all even though the...
