Menno-Hof is a must stop before you take in the rich landscape and gentle charm of the Mennonite and Amish Community in and around Shipshewana. The Center interprets the rich history, the family-oriented lifestyle, and deep faith of the Anabaptists in a variety of multi-visual ways that will truly enrich your experience in Amish Country.
24 Different Venues
Travel through 24 different venues will take you into the world of the Anabaptists. The six-programmed areas use a variety of multi-media presentations to take your group into the world of the Amish and Mennonites. There are hands-on exhibits and display areas where your group will learn many different facets of Anabaptist life. Experience a European courtyard, a dungeon with instruments of torture, a 17th-century sailing ship, a print shop, a simulated tornado and an authentic meeting house; all designed to further your understandings of the history, life and faith of these people.
Our facility is handicapped accessible and offers large restrooms, a large lobby with comfortable seating, and a book shop specializing in books pertaining to Amish/Mennonite culture and beliefs. Our shop also offers locally made Amish and Mennonite products for sale. A bus turn-around and ample parking is available.
