The two movies gave an excellent explanation of the Mennonites and the Amish history and ways of life. You leave... More

The biblical tabernacal and information center are gem's in the rough. Most locals don't know this exists, but I highly recommend stopping by.

Our family wanted to visit Amish country but my husband came across this information center so we stopped in. We had no idea that the Mennonite religion pre-dated the Amish. We watched a short informative video, bought books and had a lengthy discussion with one of the store clerks. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in learning a little... More

We got there looking for Amish communities information. The person there was very kind and knowledgeable. There's a 17 minute film about the Mennonites. Also, there are many books, videos and handcrafts for sale at this information center. We learned a bunch about the Mennonites, Amish and their culture.

There are books galore, movies about the Amish and Mennonite communities, and a tour of the Biblical Hebrew Tabernacle. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Bus tour groups are welcome. A must see when in the Lancaster area!
