“A must-see”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This museum is just excellent. There is so much most of us do not know about the Amish, Mennonite, Hutterite people. It is very well done and inspiring. Nice little gift shop too. It takes about an hour to go through and I think it would be appropriate for 2nd or 3rd grade children on up.

“The Difference Between Amish and Mennonites”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

For the uninitiated it is difficult to understand the difference between Mennonites and Amish. A visit to Menno-Hof in Shipshewana is a mustif that is to become clear. In addition you will learn that there is another less known group which come from the same Anabaptist roots. These are the Huterites, a group who live a communal lifestyle in contrast to the Mennonites and the Amish. Be prepared to spend approximately an hour and a half to fully enjoy the guided tour that has been very well set up. The tour is definitely prepared from a strong Christian perspective and thos who visit should be prepared for that. It is a very good place to commence your visit to Shipshewana. Many things will be clearer after a visit here. It is open from 10.00 am till 5.00 pm.
