The Visitor Centre educates travelers about the Mennonites. We visited this newly refurbished, little known, but definitely a pleasant surprise of an attraction in April 2009. We are sure that many others have since visited it at our recommendation alone LOL.

Finding the Visitor Centre is tricky, although it is located on the most visited street of St. Jacobs that passes right through village centre. Why? The Visitor Centre is located in the same building as the Canada Post Office (see main picture). One can easily miss it.

We began the tour with a multi-media journey, which shows a 13 minute introductory DVD presentation about the Old Order Mennonites. Since this Centre was less known at that time, we were almost all by ourselves, which is a good thing to have when you are trying to learn new things by reading and observing every bit of information and exhibit (see picture # 2).
