Moravian Museum of Bethlehem

The Moravian Museum of Bethlehem includes some of the most historically significant and oldest buildings in the Lehigh Valley.

Tours vary and can include some or all of the following structures:

  • 1741 Gemeinhaus: This National Historic Landmark is the oldest surviving building in Bethlehem, constructed in 1741 by Bethlehem’s Moravian settlers. Your group can discover how the 18th-century Moravian missionaries survived in the New World and grew their community in Bethlehem. Plus, visit the Saal to see Bethlehem’s earliest Moravian place of worship.
