Free entry to a small but informative museum which gives a good understanding of why and how the area was developed by German immigrants in the 1840’s. A lovely building

Here is where the German settlers worshiped in the 1800's when settling Fredericksburg area. The history is well worth the visit. It is in the center of the Market Place Square in the center of town.

This small museum holds interesting artifacts and the lady working the day we went was very interesting to talk with. Also, include a small gift shop. The garden area behind the museum is worth making this stop a part of your Fredericksburg visit.

The history of the German settlers in Texas was well organized and very informative. I felt like this should have been included in Texas History classes. The information made our visit to Fredericksburg more meaningful.

While the rest of the family had their lunch in the park, my youngest granddaughter and I visited here. It was fascinating, with items loaned or donated from the descendants of the original German families who started this town. Well worth a visit, which is...More

The museum was free (free will donation) and the staff person on duty was very friendly. It's a small museum, with not many exhibits, but it gives a nice little over-view of Fredericksburg's past. There are some interesting and unique gifts for sale there. It's...More

German immigrants settled this town in the 1800's. Very interesting history of how they came to Federicksburg. This building is a replica of the original. It was the meeting place, worship center and educational building at one time. Now contains artifacts, memorabilia, historical documents and...More

Give yourself 10-15 minutes go wander in this museum as you shop around Main Street. There is a great open area outside to sit and relax on a nice day. Admission is free, but they do suggest $1 donation.
