The Amish Village

The Amish Village is a great place where you can learn all about the Amish lifestyle in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Here you can take a small bus tour, a tour of an old Amish house and a small village where you can explore an old school house and plenty of opportunities to take pictures with props. There are several small shops where you can buy souvenirs.


Nine Things We Learned About the Tour

It's worth doing both the bus tour and the house tour. There are some information overlap, but you do learn a lot about the Amish lifestyle.

When you walk in the Amish Village there is a small store where you purchase tickets. There are 2 other shops on the grounds, so there are more things that are available.

There are plenty of opportunities to ask questions on the tour, so it's good to think of some before you go.

The bus tour stops at a farm stand where you can buy produce and merchandise. A good way to support the Amish.

You'll see plenty of horse buggies on the bus tour. Be aware that the Amish don't like you to take pictures of them. (Wonder Why? Ask your tour guide!)

You are allowed to explore the village without paying for a tour.

There are bathrooms in the Amish Village, next to the schoolhouse. Just typical bathrooms nothing different/special about them.

We did both the Bus Tour and the House Tour. We arrived at 10 am and left the property at 12:44 pm. We did take our time exploring the Village, especially the schoolhouse and general store.

There are small gumball type machines available to feed the farm animals, bring quarters if you want to feed them. If you forget, you can always get change at the general store.
