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.

  • We love the Landis Valley Farm Museum but when we got there on a Friday, the place was overwhelmed with 283 grade school kids. The kids were well-behaved but every building was set up for the their tours and we could not see anything. We got to peek into the school room through a window in the cloak room and that was pretty much all we saw. We asked for our money back and received it with no problem. My advice is don't go if the parking lot is full of school buses.

  • It's a wonderful museum of Lancaster County Life in its early development. In September every year they have a wool festival and invite the Lancaster Spinners and Weavers Guild to demonstrate. It is fun and informative.

  • Great range of historical buildings & demonstrations. Great for walking around too. Our visit was highlighted by a trip to the Blacksmith, a super friendly & passionate guy. He taught us so much that we stayed in his shop almost an hour! The second highlight are these beautiful giant horses we saw. Worth the trip for all ages!

  • You will get a lot of enjoyment here if you like learning how people use to live. Real people doing real work like in the 1800's. I had a great time here even though the weather was lousy.

  • I was here for the Plant Festival. Rainy day but full of people. There was a good amount of vendors with a variety of goods. The star was the museum's heritage plant tent. Fun event and the museum has a lot of interesting buildings to explore. Looking forward to more events here.
