Very educational and interesting. Guides will answer any questions and are so friendly.There are movies to tell the story of the Anabaptists' beginning in Europe and how and why they came to the US. Exhibits show how they live.

Now I know the difference in lifestyle and dress of Mennonite and Amish.

Well worth the money and time.

This is a learning experience that will take about 1 1/2 hours or more, and it is difficult to leave in the middle. You will learn about the AnaBaptist roots of the Amish, Hutterite and Mennonite traditions and better understand what you see in the area. The displays are more than just things to read - they dramatize events and life. Some parts are led by tour guides. Be prepared for just a little religious discussion, but nothing is pushed. Very interesting to learn about the Mennonite Disaster Relief efforts.
