This is a great place for booklovers and everyone else! It is such a neat place with art, collectables and even candy and food! We loved it.

What a perfect little shop to get lost in. Endless high-quality items and goodies to catch your eye. Full of nostalgia and charm, just like the rest of Allentown. A must see.

What an awesome shop. If you can find something in this place...you are too picky lol. Very nice selection of gifts, and it's deceiving looking at it from out outside. Much bigger inside that what it looks outside.

Loved this "Book shop" and all it's interesting gift ideas. Lots to see. Various rooms with lots of ideas for gifts for the holidays. Crowded around Christmas. Lots of Moravian stars to choose from! Not to be rushed as there is so much to see.

This is a beautiful bookstore, laid out in a linear fashion with wonderful little nooks and crannies. Very attractive seasonal decor. Has a nice selection on Moravian history. Worth a trip!

Moravian book store have a little bit of everything from Xmas decoration,coffee shop, candies, kids book, seating area and a lot more. It's amazing to walk around the shop and feel the history that surround this book shop establish in 1745.

Moravian Book Shop has a great blend of merchandise, from great framed photo of the Bethlehem area, Christmas decorations and items from household to beauty to books. It's makes for a great shopping experience.

We brought friends along this time to visit the bookstore. This is much more than a bookstore. I purchased Bethlehem stars for Christmas as well as having glass of mead that they have brewed. My husband found books to buy as did our friends. It is centrally located and a nice place to rest between our tours in town.
