“Closed”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

This museum's web site claims the Heritage Center Museum is now closed. It seems unclear whether it will re-open. I would check the web site at LancasterCountyHistory,org, where the museum's collections have been moved.

My remarks are filled in only to complete this form. They are not true or accurate. I just chose the first answer.

“Very good informative place about Mennonites and Amish--check change of address”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

This very nice small museum tells an interesting story of the area and people who live here. Beautiful artifacts. There is a $5 charge for the museum, $4.50 senior. They are no longer on King St. in Lancaster, but off Route 30 across the street from Dutch Wonderland. Also check with them about times they are open--it is listed differently in different publications.

“Stop and spend a few minutes”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

The Heritage Center Museum collects, preserves, and interprets Lancaster County Pennsylvania's history and decorative arts.
From its exhibits and collections, see the visual works that decorated the homes and reflected the lives of the people who have called Lancaster County home through the years. Each museum piece is a lasting reminder of the people who created what is now Lancaster County history.

“Take the time to go here.”
Reviewed November 20, 2009

The museum is next to Market Place and connected to the visitor center. Got lots of info here as to best places to visit. There is book you can buy for $1 and take a walking tour of some interesting homes, churches and businesses. I thought it was very interesting but the family got tired of walking. The best thing is on the third floor. The printing press has people there on Tuesdays I believe. Our whole family loved the tour of the printing press. Kudos to the .918 club for all the interesting info!
