My husband and I enjoyed learning the history of the Amish and Mennonite people in such a calm, quiet environment. Very enjoyable for adults but unfortunately, I think young kids would be bored!

The Menno-Hof Mennonite-Amish Visitor center was a nice way to better understand the history of the Amish and Mennonites. Although it was very informative I wish it went a little deeper in explanation of their lifestyles.

The Menno-Hof Visitor Center is a superb way to learn about Anabaptist principles, the beginnings (and persecution) of the Amish, Hutterites, and Mennonites nearly 500 years ago, and how they made their way to America. There is a imaginative mix of teaching tools -- videos,...More
