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!!!

Shipshewana is an Amish - Mennonite community that can be crowded with visitors. The crowds and traffic are in stark contrast to the Amish horse and buggy and bicycles that you pass. The Menno-Hof Mennonite - Amish Visitor Center is a nice, peaceful step out of our life and into theirs. Wonderful insight into the community you are visiting increasing... More

We probably took twice as long as most folks to tour this visitor center. We must have read everything there. It was really informative. And it was very helpful too. We gained a much needed understanding of Mennonites and Amish people, their beliefs and religions. The tour guides were very helpful and quite patient waiting on us so they could... More

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.

The center features a variety of audio-visual presentations as well as informative guides ready to answer questions and offer perspective. Visitors are led from room to room, each one offering a different dimension of Amish and Mennonite history and culture. Part-way through the tour, visitors are allowed to move at their own pace through rooms that simulate various aspects of... More
