We had a lot of information from this center and all the maps and brochures we needed to visit different areas plus a good and objective info about the difference between the Mennonites and the Amish people and their beliefs and way of life.

We took our young grandchildren there, after being there a couple times ourselves. They so enjoyed it and were taught some wonderful truths from the Word of God. The explanation of the Tabernacle in Old Testament times was amazing.

While we were waiting to visit the Tabernacle, we walked through the MIC. There is no cost to walk through the info center. There are many printed materials, displays and artifacts that describe the Mennonites and the difference between the Amish and the Mennonites. There is also a 17 minute video (also free) to describe what Mennonites believe.

We watched a couple of short movies and learned some interesting information about the Mennonites and Amish. The gift shop and book shop were great. We made some great purchases here.

One of the highlights of our trip. The tour guide was the best, you could tell her heart and soul are passionate about Jesus and history of Amish & Mennonite cultures. The Hebrew Tabernacle was like nothing I've ever seen.

This small museum/visitors center has a lot to offer. The free film about the origin of the Mennonite religion was interesting. The shop has many nice items in all price ranges. The tour of the Biblical Tabernacle replica was thorough and interesting. A good presentation of the Gospel as well as historical. Docent was very pleasant and spoke well.

Very interesting displays, movie, and merchandise to peruse. I was also pleasantly surprised to share the experience with a visiting Amish family from out of state. Looking forward to going back n the Spring
