Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center

Behalt, meaning "to remember,” is a 10 ft tall x 265 ft round, one-of-a-kind, cyclorama, or "mural-in-the-round". Experience history like never before as a local historian walks you through the mural that depicts the heritage of the Amish and Mennonites from their Anabaptist beginnings in Switzerland in 1525 to the present day.  Perfect for first time visitors to Amish Country! Mon– Sat, 9 am – 5 pm | 877-858-4634

The center was established in 1981 as the Mennonite Information Center. In 1989 the current facility was built on County Road 77 to adequately present the Behalt Cyclorama and provide the adequate support space for the Bookstore and Gift Shop. In 2002, the center officially adopted the present name to more accurately reflect our community and mission.

Now in operation for more than 28 years, the Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center annually receives visitors from all 50 states, most Canadian provinces, and from about 60 countries – from Australia to Zimbabwe.
