We enjoyed our tours of Behalt. The one-room school house and the barn were interesting. The mural of the history of the Amish and Mennonites was amazing. The tour guides did a wonderful job explaining things.

This was a great place to learn about the mennonite and amish history. The two tours were very informative.

This place was amazing. I learned a lot of the Amish culture. Gave me a whole new respect and admiration of the Amish, especially in today's world.

It was an absolute pleasure to visit the Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center. The guides were informative, and the kids learned plenty of religious history and theology, as well as the history of the Amish and Mennonites. The Behalt cyclorama is an amazing artistic feat, and the feature film and tours of the schoolhouse and barn allow you to understand... More

The 265' room of artwork was amazing in itself, however the history of the Amish was very interesting. They have went through so much and remain strong in their faith. Also, it was great that the tour was given by an Amish man. Very nice book / gift shop.

We visited Berlin on Sat. 7/1.The traffic down the main street in Berlin is under construction and is two lanes wide. Needless to say, the traffic is a nightmare and parking is not too much better. We started off at a couple of shops but then decided to visit the heritage center. What a treasure! For $12.50 per person we... More

They have displays that show lots of history. There is a charge for viewing the mural and touring the old school house and barn. You can... More

When you travel to the Amish/Mennonite area of Berlin, OH (where there is the largest number of people in the world who belong to these groups), you must visit this amazing cyclorama (a huge hand painted mural in a circular room--it took the artist 5 years to complete it!) and museum. We were lucky enough to get a private tour... More

This is a fantastic depiction of the formation of a Christian way of life. A must see, just to know the facts about an ultimate life style.
