Informative story of Mennonite and Amish history

This was a very interesting museum about Amish and Mennonite history. The narrated tour of the 360-degree mural of the Amish-Mennonite history is well worth the $8.

I had several questions and the tour guide was willing to answer and even discuss them with us. The mural room and included story was interesting. Well worth it if you are interested in Amish background.

Very educational video on the Amish and Mennonite religion. The large painting niz worth the stop by itself. The story it tells is quite amazing along with the talented painter. Very knowledgeable staff. Well kept building.

Coming from an Anabaptist background, this helped to explain a lot of the history of the Anabaptist tradition. There is much misinformation, especially about our Amish neighbors. This cyclorama coupled with a knowledgeable guide helped me to understand the tradition. The cyclorama is deserving of more time than the tour can allow. No one urges you to move on and... More

During our trip to Holmes County, one of our first stops was the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center. The folks behind the counter were very welcoming and answered all of our inquiries about the customs and traditions of the Amish. There were also Amish related artifacts and documents, including a Bible from the 1500's! If you are a first time... More

My wife and I drove around some of the surrounding area and had wondered what the Amish and Mennonite day-to-day life looked like. I must admit, initially, I thought this would be more like a museum, 'walk around and read signs' type of a visit, but I was pleasantly surprised! We watched a quick 15 minutes video that gave an...

We were travelling in the area and this was a great stop. The verbal description of Behalt was amazing and my guests were thrilled to have the opportunity to access this information.

The movie was very interesting and informative and we really enjoyed the exhibits as well. It is a small museum and doesn't take long at all to go through. Don't skip the movie or the opportunity to look at the clothing and Bibles. You can skip the barn tour though and visit Yoder's Farm instead.

I work in the hospitality industry in Berlin and I admit that I never gave this attraction a thought until I went there with a FAM tour. I was in awe at what I seen and heard about the history of the Amish and Mennonites and the mural is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Now, I... More

This place must be visited at least once. This museum if you will, has both Amish and Mennonite tour guides which provide insight into their history and they are willing to answer any questions you may have. You get to experience a real schoolhouse, Amish barn, and finally the incredible cyclorama painting which takes 30 minutes of the tour by... More
