Do not delay in seeing the Behalt and enriching yourself into Church history. The story needs to be told. The huge painting is vivid and full of rich history. The tour was appropriate.

It was a simple stop, we were not planning it but it turned out to be very educational and nice. Very nice place to take kids and let them see what real work is, maybe they'll complain less to take out the garbage.

The gift shop and associated exhibitions are informative. But the only way to see the main mural is to go on a guided tour -not necessarily a relaxing vacation option for the deaf or hearing impaired. We went elsewhere.

This is a very worthwhile stop for those who wish to know more about the Amish and Mennonites, including the difference and the distinctions within the sects. The presentation by live narration in a circular mural was fascinating and very informative. Highly recommended for those...More
