The girls and I were staying in this area so we finally decided to check this place out. When we first pulled up, the lot was empty except for one other family. We walked into the gift shop to look around and to purchase our tickets. The gift shop was nothing special, but they sell very good hard candy. It... More

Our tour was just us and the museum director, and Becky was amazing. She taught us about the native Americans, the ways they lived, their relationships with the colonists. We watched them make flax into fiber. The house and the longhouse are both fascinating.

Awesome tour given by David. Very knowledgeable ,friendly, and spent extra time with guests. Was amazed at this old structure of 1719 Hans Herr House. Also the Longhouse tour. Don't miss both tours of the House & Museum and The Longhouse. With both it is a 90 minute tour. Well worth it! Nice gift shop too. My husband and I... More

We went on a spring day and had the place to ourselves. The guides were informative and personal. We took our time and thoroughly enjoyed soaking up a little more historical information. We followed our tour with a picnic lunch on the beautiful grounds.

I'm a native Lancastrian and descendent of the family, so I may be biased, but I love taking my kids to the Hans Herr House. I've been going there since I was a child and the displays are great. I plan to take them back this summer to see the new Native American house exhibit. The gift shop has nice... More

The tour was excellent and the grounds very nice to walk around. There are several free standing buildings and one main house. The inforation from the tour guide made you feel like you were reliving the moments.

Tour guide was excellent, and the house was interesting. We visited during November, so we had the place to ourselves, which was nice. If you are in the area, and are interested in history, consider visiting. Nice gift shop as well.
