Visit a significant part of German-American history – and early Missouri settlement – at Deutschheim State Historic Site. Stroll through the restored 1840s and 1850s buildings and explore how German-Americans settled the Hermann area and developed the basis for a Missouri wine industry. Grapevines planted in the 1850s can still be seen on the property as can a number of historic artifacts.

My wife and I had a personal tour of the old historic homes in town because we were the only two on the tour. The director showed us different homes, answered all of our questions, and new a great deal about the architecture and history. If you enjoy history and older architecture DO NOT miss this!

We visited June 20. We arrived 10 minutes after the tour started but the guide was able to accommodate us. There are only certain times tours leave and there is only one staff member. The guide was very knowledgable and informative. It was difficult for everyone to fit in some of the spaces and therefore a little awkward at times.... More

Disappointed that we drove to Hermann specifically to see this historic site, but it was closed due to a tour being given. There was no information for a self-guided tour of the grounds or anything else.

I have shared Deutschheim with friends from Germany to Missouri many times and never been disappointed with the visit. Run by the Missouri State Parks it is always open and has friendly well informed and talented staff that are excellent at sharing the story of Hermann. The restoration of the museum houses are authentic, and cover the narratives of the... More

Delightful museum exploring early German heritage in this quaint town. The museum has several homes being restored and presents a nice display of tools and furniture pieces relative to the Missouri settlement. So nice to find a museum without the Walt Disney version of settlement but based on authentic historical presentation of real people from the area. Nice small gift... More

The tours were great and the volunteers took time to answer questions from both teenagers, teachers and seniors.

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

Another family and my husband and I showed up at an "off time" but the gentleman running the tours was willing to fit us in between scheduled tours. He was a wealth of information and the buildings were were able to enter was packed full of heritage items, some even relating to the families that lived in the homes. Enjoyed... 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.
