One of the prominent communities in Lancaster is the Pennsylvania Dutch settlement. The Landis Valley Museum is a living history village and farm dedicated to the first settlers of the community in rural Pennsylvania. This museum was opened in 1925 by the Landis brothers as a tribute to the community. Today, there are school groups and education institutes, farms, marriage halls and other village landmarks that form a part of the museum. Visitors can experience the 18th and 19th century farm life of Lancaster when on a visit here. Curators are constantly on the search for more and more items of the Pennsylvania Dutch history to add to the museum. Do not forget to check out the special collections on display. The museum is spread a little over hundred acres, so take your time and absorb each experience slowly.

Landis Valley Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • There aren't enough accolades I can give this place. What an awesome, amazing first time visit. I can see this will be a continuous adventure. There wasn't enough time to see everything because each interaction at a demonstration with the staff was just wonderful. The information and the educational side of the different events was something I will forever cherish. We plan on bringing the grandkids in the future.

  • Great historical area located in Lancaster, PA. Cute little shops and a cool blacksmith shop. Beautiful old houses and ample parking. A little bit of a hike to get there, but for me ,well worth it.

  • Beautiful place to visit. Learned some new and interesting things. Very enjoyable afternoon. I'd love to go again next time I'm out that way

  • This living history museum does an excellent job of interpreting the history and stories of the Pennsylvania Germans. The changing exhibits in the visitor center are state-of-the-art exhibitions. The special events here are fun for everyone.

  • Very interesting village that give i sight to early Pennsylvania Dutch living. Don't miss the school house, but be warned that when you visit to be on your best behavior and listen to the teacher. Mr Boyle in the gun shop was amazing. Good time had by all the fourth graders and chaperones.

  • do you need a tour to enjoy the museum...or can you join one when you arrive there? are the costs the same? are there specific times for tours?

    • You may go on a self-guided tour to enjoy the museum. I am not sure, but I guess tours are applicable only to a group of 10 or more. I suppose group tour rates are slightly different. To get the exact information, you must visit their official website or call on 717-569-0401 ext. 216.
