For the Amish community time has stood still since the seventeenth century. This museum is a good place to learn about their customs and their way of life, both at home and in their daily work on their farms. The farm is run by some old ladies who show you simple furniture and equipment commonly found in Amish houses. It is striking to find clothing laid out in the bedrooms belonging to the spouses and to the children. The 'appliance' usually found in the Amish homes are curious. You can rent the typical horse-drawn carriage used by the Amish to take a tour around the farm, and a bus tour throughout the Amish County
In Lancaster County, there are shops where you can find many handicraft items made by Amish and Mennonite community.

This is a great place, with meadows and green fields, big farms, horses, goats, sheep, llamas and camels, and Amish farmers working the land in a traditional way, with plows pulled by animals. This is the landscape that characterizes Lancaster, a fascinating region of Pennsylvania that's worth visiting at least once.
In Pennsylvania in the United States, there is an Amish colony which follows the traditions of their religion to the letter. You can wander through the streets and come across them wearing their peculiar simple dress and riding on horse-drawn carriages. As you know, they don't use electricity, their main activity is farming. Actually, it is a place I recommend to get to know the wide variety of cultures that can be found in the same town.
