My wife saw the museum and so we all went. They also have information about the area attractions and things to do. The ladies were very helpful in suggesting places to see and eat. Our 2 daughters and son-in-law went through the museum and enjoyed it. We will go back soon.

This unique museum has excellent history about the Swiss culture and cheese industry that came to this area. Displays are excellent and informative. The lady at the desk was also very helpful in giving us literature about other attractions in the area. From the front of this museum you can see the "World's Largest Clock" that puts on a little...

This is a well curated museum of artifacts representing the early days of the settlement of the area. The "how to" exhibits are accurate and explain the processes in easy to understand ways. The Alpine horns display was very interesting and the craftsmanship was amazing. Although they don't charge admission please make a donation. It's well worth a visit.

The Alpine Hills Museum is an excellent small historical museum which does a fine job of telling the story of the settlers of the Sugarcreek area, which is known as Little Switzerland in case you missed all the billboards on the way in to town. In more than 30 years of travelling to Hiolmes County, I had never been in... More

Stopped in here for about 15 minutes. It is completely free unless you want to donate a couple bucks which we did upon leaving. There are two floors of antique Amish items with all the stories behind them. I found it rather fascinating and recommend you stop in.

Today was the third time I have visited this charming little museum. I find it very interesting. There are three floors. Today the basement floor was closed for renovation, but I still enjoyed it very much. It is free, but they encourage donations, which I also recommend. Mostly it shows life in the late 1800s and early 1900s for the... More
