Took our whole family there. Watched a couple of videos, toured the museum, asked a lot of questions, very interesting to learn about the past, a lot of things we did not know. Beautiful and interesting place to visit, it does not take long.

The videos, displays and tour guides all served to provide a good historical background of the Mennonite, Hutterite and Amish traditions. There were interactive displays and activities for children as well. We learned a lot.
