As of May 1, Mennonite Heritage Village is again fully open for business. The heritage buildings in the Village and our Livery Barn Restaurant are now welcoming visitors for the summer season. The farm animals are arriving and will enjoy the attention they will receive from our guests.

In May and June the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sundays from noon to 5:00 PM. The Livery Barn Restaurant is open from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM Sundays. Beginning May 13, the restaurant will again offer its famous Sunday Buffet from 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Visitors coming exclusively to enjoy a meal or a snack at the LBR are not required to pay admission to the Village.

We encourage local residents to purchase an MHV membership, which includes a season’s pass to the Village. This allows an unlimited number of visits to the museum, including all our Festival Events. Annual individual memberships sell for $40, and family memberships sell for $80. A family includes parents and their dependent children under the age of 18.

For those who choose not to purchase a membership, daily admission rates are as follows: $10 for adults, $8.00 for students (ages 13–22) and seniors (age 65 and up), $4.00 for children ages 6–12. Children ages 5 and under get in free. A daily family pass can be purchased for $30.

MHV is a great place to bring guests from out of town. Not only does it effectively exhibit our pioneer heritage, it also provides both children and adults a large and entertaining outdoor park. Hours of exploration of the buildings, farmyard and machinery will provide an excellent outlet for pent-up energy. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
