The Amish Village is located at Rte 896 just south of Rt 30 in Strasburg, but for the GPS it's best to put in 199 Hartman Bridge Road in Ronks.

Where are we going today?

There are so many cultures that make up the United States, and so many fascinating ones for kids to learn all about - so let's start with the Amish!

The Amish Village is a completely fascinating insight for kids to really learn about this incredibly unique culture. In the heart of Dutch Country, this village gives an authentic look at the Amish lifestyle that still exists today. 

Over 12 acres, the whole family can tour an authentic Amish property! There's a one-room schoolhouse (kids - how does it compare to where you go to school now!?), a barn with sweet farm animals to meet, a smokehouse market and a blacksmith shop (something you don't see much of any more!) to name a few.

Kids will also get to chat to a real Amish school teacher in the school house, who will be on hand to answer any questions they have about life in an Amish school.

The guided tour of the farmhouse is 25 minutes (the farmhouse was built in 1840 so it's a very cool old building to look at!), then after that you get time to explore the grounds yourself.

If you're lucky you might even get to try some tasty whoopie pies and apple butter!

If you really enjoyed the farmhouse tour, you can join The Amish Village’s guided narrated farmland your on their passenger bus, which takes you through the working farms, off the beaten pass for 90 fascinating minutes! A great behind the scenes look at the history, beliefs, customs and traditions of this fascinating culture.

The Amish Village an incredible learning experience for kids, there are cute animals, and it’s FUN!

    Good sneak peak into Amish life. Larry the guide is very knowledgeable and no nonsense in giving you a brief about the Amish. Not to be mean but this is not a zoo. Just people with different way of life. So the tour gives good intro and dignity to visitors and their interests.

    We live near an Amish community in Florida but it took us going north to get the history. What a great tour led by Stephan! Very informative, spoke clearly, loud and answered all our questions. I checked some of the facts with my Mennonite friend and she said the information Stephan gave was accurate. Very happy we chose to come here as our other choice was located in the same parking lot as Target which just didn't seem right. Some of our favorite parts were talking to the teacher in the school house and lady and gentleman working in the garden....Read More

    I had the house tour, a 25-min inexpensive tour through the whole Amish house. The tour was very informative, Sue was very friendly, and you have free time afterward to walk around the house and the farm. A little disappointed by the closure of the Amish store in the farm.

    I wouldn't really buy any concessions like food or drinks but the animals are nice and so are the people.
