This place was very good for adults and larger children, not toddlers or infants. The place was very neat and clean. We have passed this place many times but someone suggested and was well worth our time.

A really great history of Amish & Mennonite beliefs, traditions, day to day life tracing today's practices back to Christian Europe and Judaism to Israel. Not only religious but a thorough and thoughtful understanding of how the "Plain People" got to today.

Family and friends all enjoyed the experience at the Mennonite Historical Society. The movies were very informitive about the difference between the Amish and Mennonites and the guided tour of the Tebernacle disply was educational. Nice place to visit especially if interested in history.

I first went for the museum and folk art, but I keep coming back for the book sales. The staff and volunteers are all friendly and knowledgeable.

We found this to be a very interesting museum. Lots to read and absorb. Not your ordinary "tourist" type museum. If you are truly interested in learning more on the Amish/Mennonite culture, this is a must see.

Admission at the time we went was $5. There is an extra fee to see the movie about the Amish. It was worth seeing, but we can't remember the cost.
