It's really quite fascinating to see the humongous equipment that was used in fields years ago and because so much of Lancaster is Amish Country, that same equipment is still used today. They work so hard but produce such amazing veggies and fruits. We are fortunate in this area to have tons of all natural fruit and veggie stands. I... More

There was a Summer Institute going on so many of the presenters were not there and some buildings were closed but they let us in for half price to compensate which was fair. It is a cool place and there is a lot to look at and read about. We loved the wagon ride around the place.

Excellent film and guided tour. Each building had craftsmen dressed in period clothing and explaining their trade. It was a wonderful way to learn about the history of the Pensylvania Dutch. I especially enjoyed all the different items available for display.

I took my toddler too Landis Valley Museum and I thought it would be a little over her head but she absolutely loved it. My husband and I enjoyed the exhibits and live demonstrations. Very fun!

We went here for the Landis Valley heritage plant sale. The area is pretty and the museum and surrounding houses give you a good feel for this part of the country over the last 150 years.

The grounds of this village and farm museum are just beautiful! Minutes outside of downtown you can step into the past (circa 1740's and beyond) at this pastoral gem - it's so serene. You can simply enjoy the surroundings, or learn about a bygone way of life. There are folks decked out in period costume cooking on a wood-fired hearth,... More
