We've done many Amish experiences in PA and OH and this is by far the best. The guides are well informed. Menno-Hof gives you the complete Amish experience from the mock up of the ship that was used as transport to America to the "tornado room" to the model of the inside of an Amish home everything is well done....

Well laid out and gives a great background of the Mennonite, Hutterite and Amish history. Guides give great additional information to what is in the presentation. As with any attraction of this type be prepared for members of your group to move through at different paces.

This was a very pleasant surprise. I have always respected the Amish. I went away with even a deeper respect.

Husband and I visited there today (Saturday in August) and found the entire presentation to be informative. Not only was out guide a professor and Mennonite, but he was able to offer a political perspective of the challenges presented to the Mennonites, and Amish in today's world. There were four short videos and lots to see. It was well worth... More

Again, this was another great place to visit. It was interesting and they even had toys/books for my little one to play with at the end. He even enjoyed looking at the pictures and watching the videos (though he didn't understand as much!) They were great about my toddler being there, sometimes he ran and they never scolded him or...

I was filled with questions and curiosity about Amish culture and the Amish people when we visited Shipshewana. A visit to the Menno-Hof answered many of my questions. I also learned that the Amish are one part of three Ana-Baptist faiths. In addition to the Amish there are Mennonites and Hutterites. The museum is a guided tour with videos and... More

Well done in terms of helping people understand the history and culture of the Mennonites and Amish. We came away thinking "Wow. The Mennonites and their spiritual ancestors have been really serious about following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, even to the point of being persecuted for it." Good mixture of museum quality displays, video projections, and guided tour.... More

Interesting place. You move from one room to another, with a tour guide (we had two different ones) and in each area you are either shown a film with a narrator or things on the wall light up as the narrator speaks. You learn all about the Amish and Mennonite lifestyles, the split between the two, their move to America... More
