This hidden gem (it sounds trite, but that's what it was!) was a wonderful stop on our tour of New Braunfels. There are several different types of houses on the grounds. The Museum is filled with beautifully crafted furniture made by the German settlers. The docent obviously loved her work and the furniture. Your hand is just naturally drawn to... More

Heritage Village includes many interesting historic buildings which were saved from destruction and moved to the site. The Breustedt-Dillen home houses the museum and contains a nice sampling of furniture shown in room settings. The docents were very knowledgeable and made our visit interesting.

Most interesting in you like to see well made handmade furniture from 50 to 100 years ago. The grounds are also photogenic

We enjoyed our visit to this house museum very much. Our tour guide got off to a slow start but after we got moving, it went well. She had answers to all of our questions and was very polite. She seemed truly engaged with us and not just reciting facts like you'd get from an automated tour. She seemed truly... More

And amazing find in New Braunfels. Just off Church Hill Road is the Handmade Furniture Museum. 9+ acre site holds the mid 1800s Breustedt-Dillen home, which houses the largest collection of Handmade Texas Furniture, all produced by the German craftsmen who immigrated to the area. Don't think that this furniture is crude or made from cow horn. No, this is... More

This was the whole reason we went to New Braunfels! It might not be interesting if you don't like furniture, but if you do wood working or carving, this is a great place! You go on a guided tour through a house and a wood shop. The tour guide tells you about the furniture and the makers (New Braunfels residents... More

German heritage and preservation at its best. Tour the facility, see how New Braunfels was in the beginning, and try to attend Folk Fest in April. You won't be disappointed.]

This little museum complex is full of beautifully hand-crafted furniture from the 19th and early 20th century. Mostly made in Texas by German craftsmen.

Today I went my my son to a field trip in the Heritage Village. The men and women who worked here were very helpful and patient with the fourth graders. The children were able to make dip candles and learned how to sew a button to a piece of fabric. They were then able to take home what they made.... More
