My wife and I have traveled a great deal and love visiting places of worship throughout the world. This place however has really opened our eyes. The grounds, buildings, people and atmosphere is just incredible and mostly the people are so happy, kind and loving. We loved the bible exhibit the most. Seeing all the old bibles and the use of Jehovah's name for God written in the earliest of traditions along with the persecution many of their people have and are still facing was the biggest eye opener. Note to self... It's a good idea to book online on their website Jw.org as although they cater for thousands of people per day, they can and do book out. We would hope to return one day to experience once again the joy these people have for what they do, the God they worship and the love they have for others. And make sure you go for a walk around the lake, just beautiful. Oh, two more things. They won crazy awards for their environmentally friendly designs and use of the land and theirs some videos on the website about it. And if you have the chance, check out their other two sites, the arts department in patterson and definately the bible printer in (I believe it's warkill)... we've never seen anything like it. These people are a credit to their God.

I was lucky to visit the new headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses last week, thanks to a community open house. The JW recently relocated here from Brooklyn where it had been headquartered for many years. The new site is outstanding, both in terms of environment and new buildings facilities. Everything is constructed according to green standards, and every attempt has been made to blend into the lovely countryside. The buildings are state of the art in every way. We were lucky to have a tour, but I understand there's a waiting list for future tours so best to call ahead regarding this. On your visit be sure and check out the laundry, living quarters and cafeteria/restaurant. The administrative building houses 3 museums, two on the lower level and one on the second floor. The lower level museums include a rotating exhibit and a permanent exhibit. Both use physical artifacts and interactive technology. The 2nd level museum focuses on the history of JW. This is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, but again call in advance regarding a tour.

After visiting the other Facilities, My wife and I had been looking forward to the day that Warwick would be open to visit. It is soo well organized, and all the info is 100% bible, and Historical fact based. The views are amazing. Highly recomend!

Took a tour of the facilities. People were nice, but I found some of the information provided to be inaccurate.

Who can describe how amazing it is to see what Jehovah's Witnesses have done here. To have a museum focused on the Bible is truly wonderful. The entire complex speaks loudly of who Jehovah' Witnesses are and a reflection of the great God, Jehovah.

This place is a beautiful example of what can be done when more than 20,000 volunteers come together to accomplish the building of their world headquarters. It is representative of many similar branch facilities around the world. The museum in its many displays highlights the history of the use of God's name "Jehovah" in Bibles through the centuries. Archival material accurately presents the history of Jehovah's Witnesses covering more than 140 years. The extensive displays graphically describe their growth and zealous preaching activity. The internal structure of Jehovah's Witnesses and how they are organized is clearly represented. This property nestled in Sterling Forest State Park on the shores of Blue Lake is a wonderful place to visit. Take it from a very happy resident! It is on Long Meadow Road about half an hour from the town of Warwick a few miles off NY Route 17. Reservations are recommended as more than 140,000 visitors are expected during the first months after opening in April 2017. Reservations may be obtained at jw.org under ABOUT US>OFFICES & TOURS> United States

There is a beautiful complex of office buildings and condominiums, located on a beautiful lake in a beautiful forest. The drive from the security shack to the packing lot is pleasant. The exhibits are informative and the commuter exhibit staff are friendly. However, I was disappointed that it is not possible to actually visit with the people who live and work their, managing the corporate activities. All work and living facilities are completely off for limits to the public. Since they have 389 acres of forest land it would be nice if they could let visitor enjoy it, perhaps with picnic area and nature trail. There ii also a nice gazebo between the back door of the museum and the lake, but it appeared that no one could enjoy it during my two hour visit. There is great potential to make this a pleasant place to visit.

We toured the new Headquarters & nothing prepares you for the beautiful setting of the National Forest. It is amazing all of the awards that have been awarded for the "green/eco friendly" touches our Brothers & Sisters have helped create here. Since it is located in a National Park great care & thought has gone in to building the New Headquarters. From the stones chosen to naturally filter ground water to the greenery planted on the roofs. You enter through a gate & park in the parking deck. Then walk up to the check in desk. Then your group coordinator will get your headset for the self guided parts. I enjoyed the self guided tour. The Bible exhibit has had numerous Bibles added. A People for His Name has also been updated. A wonderful experience you won't forget it. All are welcome, so please take the time to visit...you won't be disappointed.
