This is a must see for anyone wishing to learn more about the origins of the Mennonite and Amish cultures. The mural that depicts the history is in a large round room and the tour guide was excellent, giving us lots of background information and answering questions. He himself is Amish. There is a free movie that is good too... More

I have been visiting Amish Country since I was a small child, but I learned more about their beliefs and origins here than any other place and time. See the painting...it's Incredible!!! The Amish Gentleman that did the descriptions was also great! Enough description/information without overwhelming with minor details. Also, excellent locally made baskets, rugs, and other crafts there for... More

We are 55 year olds..not sure how interesting this would be for teens/kids...but, we found it worth seeing. Amazing floor to ceiling 360 degree mural of the history of the Amish people. Our tour guide was very interesting and knowledgeable and the artwork ( mural) was amazing!

Very interesting mural depicting the history of the Amish & Mennonites. One doesn't realize how much persecution they suffered. Other very interesting tidbits of information.

Beginning at 9am, the excellent video, tour of the school and barn followed by the mural, provided us w an excellent underpinning of history to understand the complex strands of the cultural background of the region. This was a great starting point for the day. We arrived at 9 and were away by 1030am. Highly recommend!

If you want to know more about the Amish and Mennonite's this is the place. The painting is amazing and teaches way more than anything I have ever seen about these two Christian denominations. Very worth the time, and a great place to start.

We arrived just in time for a tour of the 265 foot mural of the Amish and Mennonite history. It was led by an Amish man and provided great insight in to the history and lifestyle. It was well worth the $8. Fee. There were also some interesting displays about Amish life including wedding customs etc. there was a display... More

We visited the center on a Friday afternoon. When we walked in we were greeted by an Amish man who sold us our tickets. If you are there to just see the mural, it is eight dollars per person. However, they also have a school house and Conestoga wagon in their barn to tour as well. That is an additional... More
