Historic Bethabara Park offers tours for walk-in visitors, large groups, and schools. Guided tours are available to walk-in visitors during the Visitor Center’s open hours. Please call ahead of time to make a reservation if your group size exceeds 10 people. If you are a teacher wanting to book a field trip, please visit our “Plan a Field Trip” page.
Historic Bethabara Park offers two different guided experiences: our Gemeinhaus Tour, which explores the original building that served as the settlement’s church and minister’s living quarters, and our Log House Tour, which provides plenty of hands-on fun for the young and young-at-heart. Groups may choose to participate in either one or both tours.
Tour Length: Approximately 1 hour Admission Fee: $4 for adults; $1 for students and children over 3 years of age
Log House Tour
Tour Length: 30 minutes – 1 hour Admission Fee: $4 for adults; $1 for students and children over 3 years of age
Historic Bethabara Park has two separate picnic areas you may reserve when you book your group tour. Neither area is sheltered, so please have alternate plans in the event of rain. Bethabara also offers a small gift shop located in our Visitor Center that includes Moravian cookies, colonial toys, and unique locally-made items. Bethabara’s grounds and trails are free to explore, if you would like to extend your visit with a self-guided look at the site.
Many of the items located in our 1788 Gemeinhaus are over 200 years old and must be treated very carefully. In order to help us preserve them for future use, we ask that you please do not touch any artifacts or sit on the furniture. All of the items located in the 1834 Log House are replicas. In order to better enjoy your visit and engage with history, we ask that you please touch the objects and sit on the furniture. Food, drinks, gum, and backpacks are not allowed in the exhibition buildings; please make arrangements to leave them on the bus. Please silence your cell phone during guided tours.
