We happened across this wonderful little gem as we strolling around town. The guide really know her stuff and took time to answer everyone's questions. It is a very intimate and interesting little museum and well worth stopping by when in Bethlehem.

Tour guides are excellent and the subject matter is very interesting. The tour really gives you an excellent idea of how life was for the Moravian's in Bethlehem.
