We took some visitors on this tour. While it is very interesting, it quickly becomes boring after the first 10 minutes. Our tour guide is obviously well educated, and in-tune with the local Moravian history. Visited in Jul-12. Drink a strong cup of coffee beforehand.

Great museum to learn about the Moravians and Lehigh Valley. Affordable priced trinkets. Did you know the Liberty Bell was hidden in Bethlehem from the British? The bell was brought by the brethren house and the cart broke. The brethren helped fit it and thus adding in the Liberty Bell being Hidden for safe keeping during the revolutionary war.

Has a little bit of everything, sure to satisfy young, old an in between. Oh, and a delightful counter full of deserts, coffee and various food items.

Hello, We appreciate your TripAdvisor review, but I believe you may have the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem confused with the Moravian Bookstore on Main Street. The Moravian Museum of Bethlehem is on Church Street and houses exhibits related to the early Moravian settlement of Bethlehem. Here's a link to the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem if you need some additional information:... More

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
