Presentation of the tabernacle was well done. Helped with our (and kids) understanding. Price is reasonable. Also we learned differences about the Amish and mennonites. Great info and good store for shopping.

No, the Mennonite Information Center does not offer ancestry services. The building beside them houses the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, and they have resources for doing ancestry research.
Are photos allowed on the tour?
