I learned a lot of interesting information while visiting the Deutschheim State Historic Site. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He was able to answer all questions he was asked regarding Hermann's past through the present. It was interesting to learn about these old settlement towns.

This museum consists of three separate buildings and seeks to explain the origin and history of Hermann, MO. The guide was knowledgable and interesting. The sites were fascinating, especially the house in which a lady lived without electricity or plumbing into the 1960's. We appreciated the historic garden. It was really a glimpse into the early history of the town,... More

Guide didn't seem to know much except what was already printed on placards. Slobby in his dress and presentation. The exhibits themselves were nice and well maintained. Just expected better presentation, didn't learn much more than we could have gotten from a self guided tour.

The site is a historic gem and probably the single best way to understand Hermann, the surrounding region, and its ties to Germany. Our timing precluded taking a tour, but the self-touring was great because of the staffers there. There were docents in period garb making baskets, answering questions (and serving old-fashioned cookies and pink lemonade) in the ancient tool... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Hermann. A must if visiting for the first time. Enjoyed learning about the first settlers that came to Hermann, and the history through the years.

Our guide was totally knowledgeable about the historic site and the history of Hermann. As an added benefit, she had been the architect involved with restoring the historic buildings of the Inn at Hermannoff and knew the history of the particular building in which we were staying.

If you like local history, this is an interesting walking tour about the early pioneers of Hermann. The gentleman that provided our tour was knowledgeable and friendly. I didn't think I'd like it, but it was worth the small cost.

Right in the heart of town- you're there anyway- might as well go on the tour! You go through two of the original houses and learn how life was lived. If you walk around town and look at all the old houses- this is your chance to go inside!

We had been to Hermann before but had never taken this tour. We would have had to wait over an hour until the next tour but one of the tour guides was kind enough to give us a tour anyway. She was excellent and very informative. Would recommend to anyone that wants to know more about Hermann and it's original... More
