Very informative!

Learned much about the Mennonite and Amish religions. Guides were very good and the short films were well produced. Recommend you do the tour.

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.

This was a good museum. There were lots of different rooms with videos and then self guided tour. Definitely a lot of history of how the Amish came to be. Personally, I wanted to know more about how they live today and what a typical day looked like. There really wasn't much information on that but the guides were happy... More

I have been to this little museum several times and highly recommend it often. I love the history, which provides a very helpful orientation for many of us with Anabaptist heritage. It brings you to the present, describing the relevancy of the Faith today. The docents are pleasant and the gift shop unique.

This is the first thing we did when we got to Shipshewana. I would highly recommend it as a good place to learn about the history of the Amish and Mennonites. You could rush through it in an hour. We spent 2 1/2 hours there and didn't read everything we would have liked. As you walk through the museum you... More

The Menno-Hof Visitor Center is a good place to begin. The various rooms, presentations, videos, help the visitor to this Amish/Mennonite community understand the culture and the beliefs. This was a good learning experience as well as a place for us to gain new appreciation for the Amish and Mennonite people.

The museum gives a very informative overview of the Anabaptist movement and the three groups which developed from it. It was very worthwhile and well done. Allow at least an hour and a half to absorb all of the information in the various areas of the museum.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Part of it is guided and part you are on your own pace. The history is amazing. It is very reasonable and great for families. This really is a must do in Shipshewana, Indiana. You start with Anabaptist history and learn about Mennonites and Amish in modern day Indiana.

Very informative and interesting. It probably won't hold the interest of small children, though. It is a lovely display.
