My wife and I decided to visit this attraction and the local town of Hermann while traveling from St. Charles to Columbia. The drive to this quaint area was very pleasant. I have to say though that we were a bit disappointed when we arrived. The town has a small, but has a nice historic district which is highlighted by... More

Lots of German history in this really small town. The tour guides are really proud of their heritage and they were more than happy to share the town's history with their visitors. We were traveling with a German professor and even he was impressed with their knowledge of Germans in Missouri. After eating all the sausages and drinking all the... More

If you want a nice history on Hermann or you have some German blood, you will definitely enjoy this tour. Several historical buildings and museum, including tour given by the State of Missouri.

We took this tour to learn a little more about Hermann and we were completely satisified!! My maternal family has German heritage and it was great to see why our family changed the spelling/pronunciation of their last name. Worth the 5 bucks!

Will I go back? Yes. This state historic site compares an upper class settler and a working class settler of Hermann, MO. The guide that we had was full of interesting tidbits regarding the overall history of the area and a great explanation and visual of how the Missouri River used to flow prior to the Corps of Engineers taking...

Volunteer guide was excellent. You saw a domestic dwelling and then walked down the street for a commercial building. The displays were excellent. Point--arrive at a tour time. 10 a.m. , 12 a.m. and another because if there is only one guide the headquarters building is closed and left with a return sign.
