The Alpine Hills Museum in downtown Sugarcreek contains three floors of historic artifacts depicting the early days of the Swiss and Amish heritage unique to this area. A visitor’s trip through the museum starts with a 12-minute video presentation about Amish culture and the Swiss immigrants’ impact on the Village. The tour continues through numerous audio-visual displays that take one back to an earlier era, including 1895 fire equipment, a 1900s Amish kitchen, a complete replica of an 1890 cheese house, an early woodshop with hand tools, an early print shop, and much more. Don’t miss seeing the Swiss Alp Horns on the top floor!

The Sugarcreek Information Center is also located in the museum’s lobby. Here, visitors can get free information about many local and area attractions and events, such as the Ohio Swiss Festival and the Fabulous 50s Fling and Car Show. Visitors can also purchase unique souvenirs to take home, such as postcards, t-shirts, magnets, jewelry, and much more! Enjoy a unique experience at the Alpine Hills Historical Museum in downtown Sugarcreek, the Little Switzerland of Ohio. Minutes away from Amish attractions, fine restaurants, shopping, and more!
