This destination is great for taking a look into the historic German community of Hermann. A large portion of the community spoke their native toungue of Gernany well into the 20th century. Very interesting.

It was interesting to see how the people lived back in the day. The museum buildings provide a historical look into the past. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. We learned much during our tour.

We did the two-house tour one Sunday afternoon. It's informative but without enough real interest or depth to generate any excitement. Certainly, kids would be bored.
