My grandfather was a Herr, and though I am from Indiana, my family has been visiting the Hans Herr House since long before it was a museum. I have a photo of my grandfather standing in front of it in the 1930s when it was used as a barn. But as our guide explained today, that history is actually a... More

This historical attraction is off the beaten path and you probably will not find huge crowds of people swarming to get in. There are no traffic jams and plenty of parking. Huge shade trees offer a respite from the hot summer heat. A most interesting tour guide will take you through the Hans Herr House, describing the way of life... More

What a neat place! We did the tour of both the Hans Herr house and the Indian Longhouse. Our tour guide was wonderful, and it was very interesting. I have to recommend the tour in at least 40-45 degrees, we froze outside and in here in November!!

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
