We were at the Information Center most of one day. We watched 2 GREAT and informative movies on the Amish and Mennonites and also did the Biblical Tabernacle. The people were SO helpful/kind and knowledgable. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!!!

What an education. This was not a boring stop and the information they are able to provide about the locals and customs was off the hook. My 17 year old was just as interested as the rest of our group. Just minutes off the main highway.

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff in store. Many unique items for purchase. We watched both films (one free and one very inexpensive) which were informative for us but our 3yo struggled a little to sit still to watch both. Our 6yo however was very interested. In the shop upstairs there is even a toy box and the kids loved to... More

The people are very knowledgeable and the tour was well done. It was nice to see what it looked like for the ancient Israelites.

We arrived just at closing hour, but the staff was very friendly and still took the time to allow us in, and to talk to us for a while. This is a must visit, even if its only to the store. Congrats to the staff for your great service!!

Back in the 1920s a Baptist pastor in Florida built a life size version a Biblical Tabernacle. The Mennonites eventually bought the replica and moved it to Lancaster. While I have read the Biblical description many times, it was really interesting to see a hard copy version. The guide did a good and accurate job of describing it. They also... More

If you are interested, there is a movie in the center highlighting the Mennonite history, faith and daily living traditions. There is also books, and... More

My wife and I have always wanted to come here so we made it a special trip to go to the Mennonite Information Center. For $3.00 per person we attended the movie that explained the differences between the Amish and the Mennonite. They had a free movie also which was quite enjoyable. They have a very large gift shop as... More

The Mennonite Information Center has two parts, each of which involves an admission fee. Part A is a reproduction of the Biblical Tabernacle (Mishkan) of the Israelites in the desert. The guide was generally knowledgeable and pleasant but I'm not sure the representation of the Tabernacle was accurate. And the admission price seemed steep for the time spent (less than... More
