Attraction details
Owner description: The Amish Village is an authentic look at today's Amish lifestyle. Located on 12 scenic acres, The Amish Village lets visitors experience an authentic Amish property, including a one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, smokehouse market and more. To begin an understanding of the Pennsylvania Dutch culture, The Amish Village provides a 25-minute guided farmhouse tour. A 90-minute back roads bus tour is also offered to take you off the beaten path, past working farms and along country roads where buggies roll along and farmers work their fields.

“Nice overview of Amish lifestyle and history”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

It is a nice spot to visit if you are interested in to know something about culture of this particular community. Your visit starts going through an Amish house, the first room is one that works as kitchen, dinning room and living room at the time and where the Amish makes the family life, then the bed rooms, summer kitchen and finally the farm. It is not a long visit (almost 25 minutes including the guide presentation) but you can stay there for longer having a picnic, buying some Amish handcrafts, feeding animals or taking pictures. Ticket is $8 for adults. Don't forgot to try the Amish jelly (Blueberry was my favorite) and the whoopies (the pumpkin one was so good)

“Really interesting and historically accurate”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great guides answer any question you may have. You'll appreciate this distinct culture more with each detail. Lots of shopping and other attractions nearby, too. Recommend this for families with kids at least 8 years old. Tots become easily distracted and bored too quickly.

“One of the Highlights of our Lancaster County Visit!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

If your looking for a genuine Lancaster County Amish experience, this is the place to start. The best option is to sign up for the "package" tour, which includes the Amish Village itself, a tour of a typical Amish home, and a mini-bus tour through the backroads of the surrounding area. The grounds contain an Amish village, including a small farm, a traditional one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, and the like. The guided house tour and accompanying narrative provided an amazing overview of Amish life and customs. And the highlight was the 90-minute bus tour through the countryside. The driver provided a wealth of information about the Amish, and he drove down the backgrounds so we could see many Amish farms and homes. We stopped at one farm, which had beautiful miniature horses. The best part is that we passed by several one-room schoolhouses, and it was recess time as we passed by. The children, all wearing traditional Amish clothing (the boys in straw hats, the girls in bonnets) playing a game of baseball. This is a must see attraction to include on your Lancaster County visit!
