The Amish Village is an authentic look at today's Amish lifestyle. Located on 12 scenic acres, The Amish Village lets visitors experience an authentic Amish property, including a one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, smokehouse market and more. To begin an understanding of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture, The Amish Village provides a 25-minute guided farmhouse tour. A 90-minute back roads bus tour is also offered to take you off the beaten path, past working farms and along country roads where buggies roll along and farmers work their fields.

After passing this place numerous times over the years we finally decided to give it a try. Very disappointed. Just a lame tourist trap. To really see the Amish and their way of life you must get off the main roads and head into the country.

I am really sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience when you visited The Amish Village. The day you visited, Saturday February 21st, was during our off season time and it was a very cold and snowy day. We would love to have you visit our property again, during the Spring/Summer season, where there is a... More

The explaining is clear and very interesting as well I highly recommend this. Also make sure to hit some side roads in your own car to see live amish action just... More

It was wonderful learning about the Amish from our knowledgeable bus driver. I did not get her name, but she shared with us that she has Amish neighbors. We only had a few others on the bus with us. It was a cold day, so nice to be in the warm bus seeing all the pretty farms. I wish we... More

A friend recommended the Amish Village to us while we were visiting Lancaster County, PA. It was an easy drive and very enjoyable. There were several tours that you could take including a bus ride to the an Amish Farm, where you could see an actual Amish family working. We just decided to take the basic house and grounds tour.... More

I have no idea whether this village truly represents an actual Amish community, but we did enjoy a couple of hours here. We started with the short tour of the typical Amish house and the. Spent time wandering the grounds, petting the animals and checking out the school house.

We were a family traveling with pre-teen and early teen age children. The house visit was just the right amount of time to teach us about Amish life but not too long as to become boring. The town was the perfect size to spend a little time getting a sense of Amish life, feeding some animals and hitting the gift... More

We did the full package with the house tour and the country tour and it was great. Interesting for the whole family. We travelled with 2 small children which the house tour is less relevant for them but the bus tour was great for the little ones as well as the older ones. Take into consideration that it will take... More

This is a collection of buildings around an old Amish farm house. There is an Amish barn with animals. Our guide's grandmother was Amish, but the guide was Mennonite. Our guide filled us in with a lot of information about old time and modern Amish life and then we toured the barn, a school house, and other buildings. There were... More
