Spotlight: The Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour


If you feel like having a break from the stressful noise of modern life, you will thoroughly enjoy the Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour combination. It takes a look back to a gentler time when day-to-day life was a lot simpler. This region of Pennsylvania is well known for its Amish settlements and the area has a very special feel to it with the stunning scenery.

FX Theatre and Homestead Tour

There are lots of things to see and do, but the two attractions that shouldn't't't be missed are the F/X Theater and the Homestead Tour. The F/X Theatre is one of just three in the United States and is made up of five huge screens and an incredible sound system combined with special effects and lighting. The presentation here tells the story of an Amish family and their struggles in everyday life, while the Homestead Tour takes you directly into the home of an Amish family and is a great way to learn about day-to-day life. Visitors can gain real insight into Amish ways which may seem quite disciplined when compared with their own, but can perhaps offer more freedom than modern living. Visitors should probably allow an afternoon to take in this attraction, as the Homestead tour lasts about 45 minutes. It's a fascinating glimpse into a very different lifestyle and you will get to see a washing machine, a sewing machine and kitchen appliances that can be operated without electricity. You will also get to see the clothes that are typically worn by the Amish and will learn what they symbolize.

Mini-Bus Tour

You can also choose to tour the Amish farmlands in the air-conditioned comfort of a 14 passenger minibus. This excursion takes 90 minutes and you will get to see the one-room schoolhouse, the bake shops and the quilting and craft shops.

Loved everything about this amish experience!The film,jacobs choice,gave an inside look into the life of an amish family & the human decisions that they are faced with.It also gave a historical back round ,which was very interesting.The film was shown in a barn setting,which also added to the experience.The film was then followed by a guided tour of the actual homestead.The tour guide was very informative.I suggest this experience to anyone!It really makes you think about the world we live in.There was also a fantastic gift shop on the premises,along with a couple amish-run stores.We also ate at the restaurant on the premises.If you decide to eat there,choose the family style sit down meal over choosing the menu.You'll be able to try all the varieties of food and will meet some really interesting people.We ended up with some new friends.There is also a buggy ride available on the premises.That was also a worthwhile trip.It took you right onto an amish farm.Let's me just put it this way,we were thinking we would be done with this experience in a couple hours.Well,we were there for 6 hours!We don't regret a thing!

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
This tour was very enjoyable and the movie was really educational. I knew that amish teens could go out in the world, but not for that long. The only way it would have been better is that if the homestead tour had been of an actual amish home and school. It was really nice, too, that you could catch a buggy tour right down the street and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely go here again!

The entire tour was very educational. Our tour guide was great! Those straight back bench seats in the theater gotta go! You are sitting on a downward angle with no place for your body to go. I felt very uncomfortable!
