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 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

The Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center is well worth a stop if you are traveling through Holmes County, in Ohio! Make sure to include "Behalt" in your plans. It is an inexpensive, but very creative, history lesson of the Amish and Mennonite culture. The mural is amazing!!

Very interesting. Did the tour and was worth while to learn about the Amish and Mennonite culture from beginning the present. Fee for the tour but not to wonder around the small museum.
