Stroll through the restored 1840s and 1850s buildings and explore how German-Americans settled the Hermann area and developed the basis for a Missouri wine industry.

We took the 10:00 am tour as soon as they opened. Linda was our tour guide and she was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We toured the garden and two buildings of early Hermann days. One was from a wealthier resident piano maker and one was a middle-class printer and wine-maker. Both were authentic representations of the early history of the town.... More

We toured two historic homes in Hermann, MO. The tour guide was a young college graduate who came from a German family herself. She was very informative and knowledgable. It was fascinating to hear about the families who lived in these 100+ year old homes.

Many American towns try to re-create Germany in America (Frankenmuth, MI, is one example - it's like being in the Bavarian foothills to the Alps but with no mountains! But Deutschheim? Best recreation of German settlers' life in America I've seen so far. Admittedly, the goal in founding this town was to recreate Germany in America - but, America being... More

Had a great guide, we were amazed to learn that she had only been an employee for a month. She knew SO much! It was evident that she enjoyed her job. VERY interesting!

Even for history buffs like my husband, the tour ran a little long. But it was very good, very thorough, and our guide was very knowledgeable. If you enjoy learning the history of the place you are visiting, this is probably the best place to learn it.

We've wanted to visit this museum for years, but never could make it fit into our schedule with their limited hours. When we finally had the opportunity to experience it, we regretted not making it work out long before. If you're a history buff, you do not want to miss out! This is the 1st place to tour; everything else... More

I am so glad I toured this place, I had no idea all the history of Hermann, MO. The tour takes you to several buildings, each one with more history, I highly recommend taking the tour!
