This place is so interesting and informative that I have visited it 3 times over the years. There are different rooms representing various parts of history - each room has a 5-10 minute presentation. So you keep moving through history and their story, literally. It's really well done.

Tour was very informative, and quite long. The fee to see the tour and Amish History seems like it is priced too high.

We spent two nights in Shipshewana and were looking for something to do besides shopping in the area. We checked the recommendations on TripAdvisor. This fit the bill! We learned so much about the Amish/Mennonite/Anabaptist faiths and the difference between each one. The history was very interesting. I would recommend this for older visitors. There were younger children in our... More

A real interesting place, learned a lot about the local religions. We came in at 4:30 so we were a little rushed.

Much of my extended family lives in Northern Indiana. Over the years of visiting them, I have seen several Amish families, farms and businesses. Last summer in an effort to learn more about their origins, beliefs and traditions my family visited this museum. It was really interesting to learn about their culture and history. I would recommend to anyone who... More

Exhibits and short videos describe the founding of the Anabaptist movement that eventually split into the Hutterites, Mennonites, and Amish. Their moves from Europe to the United States, Canada, and other countries are brought to life through narrations, "cobblestone streets," and a "boat ride across the Atlantic Ocean." The exhibits also describe daily life for current members of these faiths,... More
