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.

My husband and I went here while staying in Berlin. My husband is Catholic, but I'm Mennonite, we attend a Mennonite church and this helped him clear up a lot of what we believe. What a wonderful mural and very well done. Our guide was very nice and informative and we had fun playing the "Mennonite game" together. (The game... More

We enjoyed visiting here and learning about the lifestyles of the local Amish and Mennonites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would have liked to take the tour to see the mural of their history, but we thought admission for that was a bit pricey per person. But there is a lot to look at without doing that,... More

I didn't really know that much about the Amish history and the Heritage Center answered all of my questions. The gift shop is excellent as well. I was able to purchase a true Amish straw hat made by a local Amish woman.

We stopped here on a recent trip to Holmes County. The mural is absolutely breathtaking and along with the narration gave a stunning visual history of the Amish and Mennonite religion since it's founding. Our guide was excellent and the center offers a wide array of reading material for getting to know the culture a bit better and also lovely... More

I usually share my own opinion, but in this case, I am sharing the consensus of 6 close members of our family who all went together to the Center. The highlight is a huge diorama depicting the history of the Amish, Mennonite and Hutterite people. Berlin, where this is located is the centerpiece of the Ohio Amish country and this... More

This is one of the first places you should go when you get to Ohio Amish country in order to understand the Amish people and what they stand for. The Bahalt mural is explained by a knowledgable guide and the time is well worth it if you are to have an understanding of the people. The mural tells beginning till... More

We really enjoyed the Behalt and particularly the guided tour of the 'painting'. Hearing the heritage of the Amish people from an Old Order Amish man was extremely interesting.
