This is a not to be missed place especially if a first time visitor to Amish Country in Ohio. A short film gives an introduction to persons of the Amish and Mennonite cultures and faiths. The 360 degree painted mural tour is extremely interesting as well as informative. Led by a experienced guide who is either Amish or Mennonite, the... More

If you are interested in the history of religions and specially of anabaptist this is a place to visit. The tours are conducted by guides who are very willing to share their knowledge.

This 265 by 10-foot cyclorama painting tells the history of the Anabaptist people, who later split into the groups Amish, Mennonite, and Hutterite. It took the artist, Heinz Gaugel, 14 years to complete the mural, and it is one of only four cycloramas in North America. A small fee (ask about the AAA discount) is charged to view the Behalt...

Two tours are offered: one of the schoolhouse and barn; the second of the Cyclorama. We took the combination package. The two structures are interesting and our guide was informative but the mural was amazing. There's a small gift shop with items that are very reasonably priced as well!

Just outside Berlin, the centre offers a fascinating though rather gaudy , massive mural showing the history of the two religious communities. Instructive esp with the lecture given by the Amish gentleman. You can also see a barn. And hear about the method of raising one and the wagons used . And one visits a schoolroom. All these places have... More

Tour guide gave a very informative and factual history of the beginnings of Amish and Mennonite belief systems, and how and where they fit into the Reformation, and move to the US.

The half-hour tour along the mural (circular walled room) was VERY interesting; I'm a bit of a church history buff, and this gave me tons of history about the Amish coming over from Europe and settling in America. Our tour guide was an Old Order Amish man; quite the historian and teacher of Amish life and beliefs. Exterior of building... More

This is a must see to better understand the Amish and Mennonite community. There is an inside tour and an outside tour in addition to the center itself which has literature, books and souvenirs. The outside tour shows the inside of what would be an actual school house. The guided tours are led by members of the Amish community. Our... More

Had almost a private tour. 245 ft cyclorama depicting the history of the Amish and Mennonite way of life, tour of one-room schoolhouse and Conestoga wagon in addition to two Amish buggies made for a wonderful afternoon. Tour was conducted by two Amish gentlemen who were very personable and willing to answer questions.
