Located in the heart of Lancaster's Amish Country between the towns of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse, the Amish Experience at Plain & Fancy Farm offers a wide range of attractions and activities, from tours and meals to lodging and theater.
"Jacob's Choice" in the Amish Experience Theater uses special effects in its one-of-a-kind story of an Amish boy caught between two worlds. "400 years of history in 40 minutes of magic." The theater also offers Magic Lantern Shows, a rarely seen form of entertainment before there were movies, with a live showman, music, and dramatic images in the only permanent theater of its kind in the world. Patriotic, Bible Stories, and Christmas shows are available to groups.
The Amish Country Homestead, a designated "Heritage Site," offers guided tours through nine rooms explaining life without electricity, the meaning of Plain clothing, and the authentically furnished Amish one-room school.
These can be combined with excellent step-on guide services, as well as special interactive theme tours available only to groups, including the Amish Visit-in-Person Tour, meal in an Amish home, Sight & Sound show/meal packages, and American Music Theatre Christmas packages.
