Wonderful tour. The tour was about an hour long. This tour is not handicap accessible. It is a very old building, and as expected, the floors are a bit uneven, there are stairs to climb, and the ceilings are low. The guide was informative and interesting.

Twenty of us had a wonderful and informative tour with Kathy. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made our tour fun and a great learning experience. She loves her job and has put a lot of time into learning about the Moravians. I would highly recommend this tour as well as any of the sights in Betlehem.

The Moravian Museum is chock full of artifacts, furniture, dolls, musical instruments, and generally everything that reflects what it was like to live in Moravian Bethlehem in the 18th Century. Beginning with the large Saal (community meeting room) upstairs, and continuing on through all the bedrooms, music room, bed where Lafayatte was tended by Moravians during the Revolution, and a...

Our docent , Madeline, was amazing. Both my husband and I learned so much about the culture and events on the early settlement of the Moravians, from their journey from Europe to America and their earliest settlement in Georgia. She included some very interesting aspects of daily "family life" and structure based on their religious beliefs which sound very strange... More

This historical gem of Bethlehem allows visitors to personally experience the past of Bethlehem's religious community. It shows the original furnishings and structures that housed men and women settlers. Docents supplemented written explanations about the various artifacts. The building itself is a well maintained example of an early American structure.

We visited the Moravian Museum on 1/30/16 as part of a walking tour from the Visitors Center, down Main St. to the Apothecary and then to the Museum. The museum and particularly our Tour Guide provided an understanding of the history of the Moravian Church and the way the members in Bethlehem lived. Displays and artifacts in the museum are...

The museum is open Saturday and Sunday from 11-4pm. Tours are about 50 minutes long and start on the hour. You can purchase your tickets at the Visitor's Center or at the museum entrance. The museum is $12 with the purchase of a Pass Into History which entitles you to two museums and is good for 1 year. AAA and... More

Multi story building with central atrium and old farm and road implements hung interestingly. Alcoves with tools of all trades and well signed. Easy to see how hard was the work and how skillful the workers had to be to create every day items. Across the street from another museum that had quilts when we were visiting. More of a... More
