The Mennonite Information Center offers extensive information on the history of the Amish and Mennonite communities in Lancaster County. The staff are very friendly, polite and helpful and will ensure that your visit is enjoyable.

We got there looking for Amish communities information. The person there was very kind and knowledgeable. There's a 17 minute film about the Mennonites. Also, there are many books, videos and handcrafts for sale at this information center. We learned a bunch about the Mennonites, Amish and their culture.

There are books galore, movies about the Amish and Mennonite communities, and a tour of the Biblical Hebrew Tabernacle. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Bus tour groups are welcome. A must see when in the Lancaster area!

What a great behind the scenes tour. Tour guide was Mennonite, the cost was $53 and we gave a $10 tip at the end, he was knowledgeable & friendly. He knew all the roads, homes, history & great places to stop. We visited farms, wood working & quilt shops. It was so cool, even our 8 & 13 year old... More

In our opinion, this is the best way to see Amish Country and learn about their customs. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had a great two hours with her.

There are a number of options to visit the same sites in this area with different operators. We were recommended this one by friends who live in Virginia and had visited previously. With this service you take a guide out in your vehicle and he or she directs you to various places and gives you the history and talks about... More
