The Elkhart County Historical Museum gladly welcomes tour bus groups to our facility.  We are here to make your visit to Amish Country memorable, enjoyable, and enlightening.

Tour Offerings
The majority of bus tours come for our "Stitches of Devotion" program. At this special behind-the-scenes program, visitors are treated to an exclusive showing of some of the museum's beautiful bedcovers.  You get to hear the remarkable story and history behind each quilt and learn about the people who lovingly crafted them.

After the quilt show, visitors take a self-guided tour of the museum's 12 exhibit rooms.  Docents are stationed on each floor to answer any questions.

Quilting not your thing? The museum does offer several other tour options for groups as well.
