“Take the time to go here.”
Reviewed 20 November 2009

The museum is next to Market Place and connected to the visitor center. Got lots of info here as to best places to visit. There is book you can buy for $1 and take a walking tour of some interesting homes, churches and businesses. I thought it was very interesting but the family got tired of walking. The best thing is on the third floor. The printing press has people there on Tuesdays I believe. Our whole family loved the tour of the printing press. Kudos to the .918 club for all the interesting info!

“Informative and free!”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

We happened by the Heritage Center Museum, which is located next door to the Central Market. The museum is free, but there is a suggested donation of $2 per person. The second floor interactively exhibited Amish life, including Amish wooden toys, Pennsylvania Dutch language, Amish school material, as well as Amish furniture. The top floor showcased a print shop.

“Nice place that can be done quickly”
Reviewed 19 July 2009

This is a great place to check out that gives you a nice overview of some of the things in the areas history. You don't need more than an hour to walk around the building.
The printing press on the top floor is nice to view.
