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

This was our first stop when arriving in the Berlin area. There is a short movie that is free, and browsing through the gift shop is free. There is a lot of information there. 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.

Both the video and the explanation of what is portrayed in a huge circular mural provide an excellent perspective on the cultural differences of the community and the history behind it. We discovered that we had many misconceptions which were cleared up by the presentation and answers to our questions. If you are going to spend a few days in... More

The owners are a very nice couple. Very knowledgeable about the area and Amish culture, as they are locals. They had some great ideas and can't-miss spots to see on your visit.
