Great place to go with the family. Lot's of hands-on activities for all ages. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our children (6, 7, & 10) had a blast!

Spend hours paging through many shelves of historical data. Find your family history and trace your lineage! The knowledgable employees are eager to help find specific info you are looking for!

We learned at lot about the Mennonite community. We spent an entire day there looking thru the history books. We try to find if we had any relatives that may have been a mennonite back in the old old old days.

Saw the brochure at our hotel concerning the viewing and explanation of The Tabernacle. Was not disappointed. Also, it was very interesting to watch their free video regarding the Amish and Mennonites.

While this is admittedly a small museum, the films and the lifesize model of the tabernacle make it well worth the admission fee. The tabernacle tour takes about 40 minutes with a well versed guide explaining in detail how it came to be, how it was assembled, transported and used. I've read the passages multiple times but until you see it erected and stand in its midst you really can't comprehend the size and scope. The museum bookshop has many wonderful offerings, the museum is well planned and labled.
