Excellent history of the Moravians and the beginnings of Bethlehem. Gained insight into how the area was founded and how the early settlers lived. A must for anyone to understand the History of Bethlehem.

If you are visiting Bethlehem, the Moravian Museum should be on your must-see list. Given the fact that the city was founded by Moravians and is richly steeped in their heritage, it seems only appropriate to learn about them while you are there. The museum is located in the historic district on the corner of Main and W. Church Streets,... More

Outstanding tours. We visited the Apothecary, Sisters House, and Gemein House. Guide Loretta was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. The entire complex of museum buildings is very beautiful and makes for a peaceful stroll.

This museum has wonderful insights into the Moravian church, the Moravians themselves and the history of the town of Bethlehem. The tour guides are well informed and the materials on display are well-presented and preserved (the collection of needlework is extensive and interesting). Partner this visit with a walking tour of the town (for example God's Acre, the Sun Inn... More

My wife and I visited the Moravian Museum in part to compare it with the Moravian museum in Salem, North Carolina, where settlers from Bethlehem arrived 13 years after settling in Pennsylvania in 1740. It was fascinating to see how the architecture supported the Brotherhood's communal lifestyle. The museum has many artifacts and costumes from the 1700s including a delightful... More

Just added to the National Register, the Moravian Museum is right in the heart of this modern town as it resurrects and reinvents itself. The buildings and artifacts are beautiful and the guides are friendly, informative and welcoming. Come prepared to walk, do stairs and hills. Comfy shoes are a must but, again, well worth the exertions.

Produced from many industries, woodworking, clock making, farming, basket making, music, pottery and were a self sufficient community. Provided for all their members who lived and worked together...
