Our personalized, guided tours with warm and knowledgeable Brethren or Mennonite guides are perfect for older students and adults of all backgrounds. However, if your group includes younger students and you would like to have some hands-on activities for them to experience, please contact us via email (info@brethrenmennoniteheritage.org) or phone (540-438-1275) at least two (2) days before your visit.

The Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center is full of opportunities for rich and meaningful hands-on experiential learning. Our field trip program—which runs Thursdays from April-May and September-November—allows students from Harrisonburg city and the surrounding counties to participate in a wide variety of hands-on activities. Through this program, the Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center has developed hands-on activities that engage, educate, and entertain young visitors. The field trip program is made possible by a dedicated corps of volunteers, and these volunteers are not available on a daily basis, but it is possible for us to arrange a few hands-on activities for your visit with enough advance notice.
