What a great way to learn about the town, its history, the reason the German people came there to make new homes, and to learn about their struggles and successes.

I am so glad we stopped by and took the tour. We were visiting on a Tuesday when the town is a lot more quite than later in the week so we got a private tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We were able to ask questions and gain more insight. I learned a lot and had a fun time. I would encourage you to take the tour if you are visiting Hermann.

This was an informative tour, lasted about 1.5 hours and only cost $5. We were glad that we decided to do this!

I've been to Germany but I'm not very well-versed on German emigration to Missouri. This trip was a spur-of-the-moment and we stumbled upon this museum by chance, but we were pleasantly surprised. Two buildings, lots of info, tons of knick knacks. My favorite details were the musical instruments, the "map" of what the emigrants expected to find, and the crazy quilt with ribbon strips from the local festivals. Our vice is antiques, not wine, but there is plenty of both in this area. We missed the Maifest by a week, but are considering returning for the solar eclipse in August if we can find a spot to park!
