The Amana Heritage Museum is comprised of three 19th century buildings. The circa 1864 Noe House was originally a communal kitchen and later a doctor's residence. Its exhibits trace the history and development of Amana, depict a church interior, and display the varied crafts and industries of the inspirationists. Temporary exhibits and special programs focus on particular aspects of Amana's culture. The Schoolhouse, built in 1870, contains the Christmas Room, a Kinderschule, toys, dolls, handwork, carpet weaving, and a communal Amana school display. The original washhouse/woodshed houses wine-making and gardening displays.
