We came in to get a general introduction on the Mennonites in Lancaster County, including the Amish & Pennsylvania Dutch. We saw a short video in their center, which was informative. We booked a guide for the next day to show us around in the area. The center itself also puts a lot of emphasis on the exhibit of the Tabernacle, which did not interest us, so we only briefly stayed at the center.
Next day, the guide took the back seat of our car and guided us through the area. As a Mennonite (but of a more liberal denomination), she had expert knowledge about the people, their beliefs and their culture. She also went to the real Amish places and avoided the tourist traps. After the 2 hour tour, we were familiar enough with the area to continue on our own. The 54 $ fee was more than worth it.
