The video of the Amish Experience accurately portrays the Amish and their beliefs and values. The Ten Thousand Villages shop has interesting items for sale to benefit international artisans.

They were incredibly helpful at the visitor center spending 45 minutes giving us a history tour without leaving the air conditioning! The multimedia Harry Potteresque room was great too!

The Lancaster Visitors Center is a great choice to make for help planning your visit to the Amish Country in Lancaster. They helped me map out a car tour that went through the farmlands of Landaster with some interesting stops along the way.
