While in downtown Sugarcreek a nostalgia experience is yours with a trip through the three floors of items inside the Alpine Hills Historical Museum. Established in 1976 it will be an experience you won't soon forget filled with history tidbits and up close and personal experiences not seen anywhere else. Admission for all ages is always FREE but donations are greatly appreciated. It is also important to keep in mind that our beautiful museum is supported by donations and all of our staff are volunteers. The Sugarcreek Information Center is located in the lobby of the Museum.

This is a well curated museum of artifacts representing the early days of the settlement of the area. The "how to" exhibits are accurate and explain the processes in easy to understand ways. The Alpine horns display was very interesting and the craftsmanship was amazing. Although they don't charge admission please make a donation. It's well worth a visit.

This museum is completely FREE! You can donate if you want to, but its refreshing not get gouged by admission prices. Three stories of very neat historical items that are local as well as from other places!

The Alpine Hills Museum is an excellent small historical museum which does a fine job of telling the story of the settlers of the Sugarcreek area, which is known as Little Switzerland in case you missed all the billboards on the way in to town. In more than 30 years of travelling to Hiolmes County, I had never been in... More

Stopped in here for about 15 minutes. It is completely free unless you want to donate a couple bucks which we did upon leaving. There are two floors of antique Amish items with all the stories behind them. I found it rather fascinating and recommend you stop in.

Today was the third time I have visited this charming little museum. I find it very interesting. There are three floors. Today the basement floor was closed for renovation, but I still enjoyed it very much. It is free, but they encourage donations, which I also recommend. Mostly it shows life in the late 1800s and early 1900s for the... More

Interesting displays, lots of variety. Worth a stop if you are in town. Very hospitable hostess, ready at a moment's notice to provide a tour (but we just walked through because short on time).

Really insightful look into the past history of the area. Many great exhibits to see that shows how the past was like in the area. Friendly staff, all they ask for is a donation to help operate the facility. Well worth the time to check it out.
