Very Interesting Museum with Informative Tour

"We visited the Moravian Museum on 1/30/16 as part of a walking tour from the Visitors Center, down Main St. to the Apothecary and then to the Museum. The museum and particularly our Tour Guide provided an understanding of the history of the Moravian Church and the way the members in Bethlehem lived. Displays and artifacts in the museum are quite interesting, including the hand made cloth dolls, The Christmas Putz, and the mannequins in period dress."
