Roadside America is such a joy! Walking in for the first time is what I imagine walking into Oz would be like - it's just crazy and overwhelming the amount of work that went in to creating this landmark. This would be a great place...More

Stopped by just out of curiosity and was very surprised. It's well worth the price to see all the great detail and hard work that went into this piece of art.

Roadside America is a great attraction. It's easily accessible from the highway and there are a few other local attractions, gift shops, antique stores, and restaurants off of the same exit. The building and exhibit are old fashioned, as the attraction was founded in 1935,...More

Another inexpensive thing to do if you're near Hershey-Lancaster-Harrisburg. The miniature village display was finished years ago, but it's still a nice attraction. This truly is a 'roadside attraction' as it appeared in the old days. Nice gift shop next door where a couple food...More

Ive seen miniature villages before but nothing like this--he seemed to think of everything right down to scenes with storm damage. You could look for days and still see something new every time. The nighttime show run about every half hour was very nice too....More

We were enthralled with Laurence Gieringers' hobby. It is a wonderful miniature village, built by Mr. Gieringer during his life. Such detail, such imagination! B & I will come again; we met a fellow patron that visits at least twice a year. We kept forgetting...More
