We loved the hands-on items, such as being able to try on hats, jackets, and shawls. I loved seeing the "inside" of an Amish kitchen.

Excellent and interest presentations of the history of the Amish, Mennonite and Hutterites, we learned a lot about the birth of Anabaptist in Europe and their persecution, which lead them to flee . So many facts we had not known and learning the difference between the sects was very well presented,

We were the only visitors at the time we arrived so this was a pleasant and relaxing 2 hour experience. We were able to watch and listen to audio video presentations which were informative about the history of Amish, the Mennonites and the Hutterites. There was much more to read but we did not take the time to do so.... More

Went there as a last minute decision. Glad we did. Turned out to be very interesting and engaging. Learned a lot that I did not know about the history and roots of the Anabaptist faith, and how the Mennonites, Amish, and Hutterites originated from this movement. The presenters were knowledgeable and thorough and answered any questions put to them. There... More

Interesting overview of Anabaptist and the offshoots of this religion. We learned so much about the Amish and Mennonites of the area and gained a much better understanding of their lifestyle. Some of the exhibits are interactive which brings the history alive. We found that there was almost too much information which made it difficult to remember it all. This... More

I spent two very interesting hours watching videos and looking at exhibits about the Mennonites, Hutterites, and Amish. Although I was alone I felt I received the full guided tour and had a chance to talk with the two guides and get questions answered. This place would be very good for children ages 10 and up as well as adults.

We have always been curious about the Amish life style and how it was started. This is the place to have all of your questions answered. The history told while touring this museum was extremely interesting. The time and effort put into the making of this museum was paid off. Well done!

My son had been asking questions about the Amish and Mennonites, so while in the area we took the opportunity to stop at the Menno-Hof. It was very informative and answered a lot of his (and my) questions. Our guides were pleasant and answered our questions.

This is a great museum to learn about the Amish and Mennonite cultures and the history of the area. The museum is constructed in such a way that you walk into various rooms and a presentation is given by the guide and an audio visual program. Great for the whole family.
