Lots of information make sure to plan on a couple of hours if you want to see everything. It was an extremely nice museum and really liked the way it was setup. Will go again because we needed more time to read all the material.

As others have mentioned, this is a very well done museum experience. You go from room to room but get to sit and experience that particular subject. It is a great way to run a museum, not much walking but certainly not lacking on information....More

We enjoyed visiting the Menno-Hof Visitor Center. It was well done and very informative, although the majority of it was slanted toward the Mennonite, with just a nod toward the Amish, tradition. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and part of the visit was self-guided....More
