A must see destination, the Menno-hof uses multiple media and interactive displays to give a balanced and well researched picture of Annabaptistes, Mennonites, and Amish with a little on the Hutterites.

I thoroughly enjoy going to the center. You can get a history lesson along with tall tales. I really enjoy the tornado room.

What a great place to learn about the Amish and Mennonites. My husband and I and with another couple enjoyed the friendly people who took time to answer our questions and explained the differences between the two groups. It's a great place to go if it's cold or raining out.

As sleepy a town as Shipshewana is, my wife and I were extremely impressed with the Menno-Hof Museum. The building, each of the room experiences, the educational information was on a quality with the museums we visited last year in DC. The historical and spiritual perspectives were demonstrated in multi-sensory ways that kept our 14 year old grandson interested. We... More

We went on a rather quiet day and got the tour. It was amazing! Our hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable, and took us through the tour. The presentation was beautifully made and took us through the most important episodes in Anabaptist history. We wanted to learn everything we could and took our time through the exhibits, and stayed until... More
