We came here to see the Biblical Tabernacle. While we waited we visited the gift shop and viewed the historical information about the Mennonite faith and way of living. The information was helpful.

Came here for some information and found the exhibit about the differences between the amish and the mennonites very informatiove (although it might need an update soon). We also watched the film about the Amish people which gave some new perspective. Would recommend if in the area.
