The Americana Museum of Bird-in-Hand
Step back to a time when cigars were two for a nickel, a can of soup cost a dime, and a shave was only fifteen cents.
Take a nostalgic walk through small town America at the dawn of the 20th century. Museum exhibits include a barber shop, woodworking shop, tea parlor, print shop, millinery, toy store, blacksmith shop, tobacco shop, apothecary, wheelwright shop, and a country general store, where neighbors often gathered to share news and play a friendly game of checkers beside the potbelly stove.
Self-guided tours are offered throughout the day. Retirement homes, day camps, churches, families, schools, and other groups are invited to schedule guided tours, which usually last 45 - 60 minutes. Teachers: Request a packet of pre- and post-tour educational activities, which can easily be integrated into your curriculum.
Victorian Carriage Rides through Bird-in-Hand and surrounding farmlands are offered on select days during the season.
