For a pleasant day trip, this is a nice place to visit. Check the hours, though, before driving here.

While not one of the larger museums, it's still a pretty neat place to walk around and spend an hour or two. The workers that are there seem to be very knowledgeable about all sorts of things throughout the area. Also, the museum puts on a lot of events that are typically fun to go to, and are worth checking... More

Hello Emily. It seems you have been in our Harmony Museum Shop, but not the actual museum! The Harmony Museum is located at 218 Mercer St, just across the parking lot from the shop building at 222 Mercer St. We are happy you found our shop to be very nice, and affordable! We work hard at that! The Harmony Museum... More

We rented Stewart Hall out for our wedding rehearsal dinner, and it worked out really well. The employees are very nice/helpful, and the price was great. You get a fully stocked kitchen with two refrigerators, which is great when you have a bunch of beer and other lovely libations for your guests. They provide the table and chairs for your... More

Very interesting history of German descendants to America. Amazing stories of families who settled here in the Americas

Learned a lot about town's beginnings but can't tell that much anymore - from either a cultural or religious perspective. Buildings are well maintained but town has a stepford wives air to it. Nice way to spend a few hours!

Have lived in western Pennsylvania most of my life. I had heard of the history of the town, just had never taken the time to stop and look around. They had a nice display of original artifacts from the town. Had a nice and chatty tour guide, they also had a special civil war display going on as well. It... More

For the many Americans who can claim German ancestry, this is an especially important and fascinating site. In addition to the story of George Rapp and the Harmony Society, the museum includes many artifacts of daily life in early Pennsylvania. I wish we had had more time to explore other sites in the area related to the Harmonists as well.... More

Starting at the gift shop we met Judy who was a wealth of information. She explained a lot about the town and the residents who originally came from Germany as separatists. There was a guided tour, but we were so well informed by Judy that we did not need to spend money for the tour. Next we went to the... More

Learning about the Harmonists is fascinating, a rich chapter in our history. They had a total of three sites, and this is their first. We were somewhat disappointed, however; we had previously visited the Old Economy site (their third settlement), which has many buildings, an introduction movie and a nice museum, and were expecting similiar in Harmony (I've also reviewed...
