This museum is the perfect place to begin a trip to historic Bethlehem. The Moravians settled the area and were a fascinating but little-known group. Our tour guide was amazing - very knowledgeable about the subject and very friendly. The museum is located in a 275-year-old building. The tour guide takes you through several of the rooms and different topics... More

The tour, about 45 minutes, was a part of $15 pass to four attractions and we felt it was well worth it. Our kids learned new history facts.

Fascinating insight into the Moravians and their settlement. The tour, about 40 minutes, was $10 each and we felt it was well worth it. We caught the last tour of the day as we had just dropped in to the town of Bethlehem. The guide was very informative as she explained the exhibits in each room. The large meeting room... More

Good lesson on the Maravians and the settlement of the area in the 1700s. Building provides insight to construction methods and furniture.

Probably not the best place to take small kids, as there isn't a lot of exhibits geared towards them. However as an adult who is fascinated with our nation's history, I would recommend taking the time to go here. The staff was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight to the early development of the Bethlehem area.

It is a nice place to learn of the beginnings of the Moravians in America. Definitely worth seeing, but much walking is involved.
