My niece is just entering into confirmation and will be studying the old testament more in depth and this always fascinated me. We found this very informative and even she enjoyed it.

The Tabernacle Exhibit was actually higher quality and more informative than I expected. The Gift Shop is large and sells tasteful, unique hand-make items from Mennonite congregations all over the world. It would be an excellent choice for Christmas shopping. My older children even found the free movie about Mennonite History and Beliefs including Pacifism thought-provoking.

My husband is a Pastor and we just raved about the way this was presented. I would suggest this to anyone, even children so they can understand the Bible better.

Here is the run down of what this experience involves:

First 15 minutes you are comfortably seated while your host explains biblical history of how the Tabernacle came about. There is a beautiful mural displaying the Hebrew camp surrounding the Tabernacle in this area. You can also see the curtain that separates the population from the Tabernacle and the area where sacrifices are made.

Next you are allowed to enter the Tabernacle. Your host describes the building materials and dimensions. The furnishings within the Tabernacle and High Priest's responsibilities are explained. You cannot enter the Holy of Holies, but you can view the Ark of Covenant through glass windows.

At the end of your tour you are allowed to take pictures and ask questions.

This experience is all indoors and air conditioned. I highly recommend checking out Ten Thousand Villages gift shop before or after your tour - located inside Mennonite Information Center.
