Landis Valley Museum and Farm has a large collection of historic buildings and farm animals, I particularly liked the linen demonstration and the gunsmith. It was also fun to feed the farm animals. There are some nice exhibits in the main building too.
My first visit in years, but now hat the grandchildren (5-10) are old enough to appreciate the displays during harvest days, I went again. I dare say I enjoyed it as much as they. Horse drawn wagon rides, bees & honeycombs, old time farm implements manned by local volunteers proved a great attraction to all. Although it is much quieter... 更多
Have some time to spend at the museum. You can walk around and enjoy the different types of houses on the property. There was an event there on Columbus Day weekend and lots of fun things going on. They teach you so much about our history and ways of life.
This trip my wife and I had a chance to visit this location. Enjoyed the demonstration in the craft and gun shops. It gives you an opportunity to see how life was back then. I wish there were more people in costume. Worth your time.
Had a great time visiting so many of the historic buildings at this location. They have a very nice presentation prior to your visit and you start your walking tour along the many locations to see . There is also a very nice gift shop with very friendly staff.

I especially like Christmas at Landis Valley, more so when there's snow on the ground. The historical buildings, the bonfire, the cookies and hot cocoa, and yes, the Belschnickel (the PA Dutch version of Santa Claus) are all delightful, and I look forward to them every year. Even on a regular day, this place is beautifully presented.
We really enjoyed our time here. The staff were very informative; it was interesting meeting the different crafts persons and hearing about the crafts.
A wonderful stop on our way home. My husband is interested in Lancaster Long Rifles and, unfortunately, that display was closed the day we visited. A slice of life as the Pennsylvania Dutch lived in the 18th and 19th centuries and filled with wonderful artifacts--furniture, tools, and living history re-enactors. Don't miss the Museum store---wonderful locally made artisan items and... 更多
