Museum Stores

Mennonite Life Museum Store

This store has long been a source of new and used books on Mennonite and Amish history, faith, and culture. Our recently expanded merchandise selection has offered an opportunity to include more Amish and Mennonite-made products, more decorative and children’s items, and contemporary crafts.

Items offered are often reproductions of items from our collections exhibited in the museum. From slate boards to oil lamps, rakes to goat carts, we work with a range of artisans and manufacturers so you can take home the perfect reminder from your museum experience.

We continue our commitment to offering a range of new and used books and other products.


1719 Museum Store

Books, toys, crafts, and Native American items are part of this museum store’s selection. Objects relating to early 18th-century life include reproduction woodwork, tinware, ceramics, and glass. Books cover topics for both adults and children, including Indigenous culture, early German culture and settlers, the Herr Family, and more.

Some items were made on the property by the blacksmith or spinner or other site demonstrator or instructor. Other products come from nationally known and respected craftspeople. In all cases, we strive to provide an engaging and educational range of merchandise for you to purchase and enjoy!
