Many American towns try to re-create Germany in America (Frankenmuth, MI, is one example - it's like being in the Bavarian foothills to the Alps but with no mountains! But Deutschheim? Best recreation of German settlers' life in America I've seen so far. Admittedly, the...More

Disappointed that we drove to Hermann specifically to see this historic site, but it was closed due to a tour being given. There was no information for a self-guided tour of the grounds or anything else.

Linda was our tour guide and she gave us a wonderful tour of two very old homes in Hermann—built in 1840 and 1842. These houses are very well preserved with much of the original furnishings. I loved all the personal information that Linda gave us...More

It was interesting to see how the people lived back in the day. The museum buildings provide a historical look into the past. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. We learned much during our tour.

The tour was great. Kim is a great tourguide. They are a smaller site so they don't have a lot of exhibit space in their main building. So take the tour!!

Our guide did a fantastic job of filling us in on the history of Hermann, Missouri and providing insight into the German culture during our one-hour tour. At $5 per person, this tour is a real bargain. We appreciated our guide pointing out which items...More

We did the two-house tour one Sunday afternoon. It's informative but without enough real interest or depth to generate any excitement. Certainly, kids would be bored.
