This is a great museum to check out while in Shipshewana; I was there for an hour and a half and wish I had more time. It cost $7 to get in which is well worth it. It's partially self-guided and partially guided. The museum does a great job explaining the differences between the Amish, Mennonites, and Hutterites. I would... More

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
