I visited the museum as part of a meeting held there. We were given a private tour and there is a lot of Brenham history there. It is well worth visiting during your stay in Brenham.

We were there on Maifest day so the entrance fee was waived. It is a small museum which houses some historical pieces relating to the history of Brenham. Interesting.

Lot of things to see and learn about as you tour the museum. Located in downtown Brenham, Texas. Just a donation to get in!

We were excited to discover Brenham had a museum as we were eager to learn more about this historic town. However, they did not have much information to share and the exhibits were poor. When we asked about one of the early prominent merchants and successful family of the town, they knew nothing about them. Overall disappointing.

Our exhibitions at the time were quite tired. She isn't exaggerating at all. We have been in exhibition planning mode for a long time, and the gallery is now far better. Our exhibits are numerous and modern. This kind of change would not have been possible without the input of our visitors... and it is always the less than stellar reviews that inspire us to try harder.

Regarding information about local businesses and such... there is a great deal to remember about the community and her history. Give us a day or so and we can go dig that info out of our records. I wish we could remember everything (maybe some folks can), but we always seem to have trouble with that... especially specifics. Call us and we can get anything you need. Thanks for the constructive review!

After checking out the cool antique fire trucks outside with our two small boys, we wandered into this museum. It is a bit dusty as small town museums with limited resources tend to be, but my 2 and 4 year old enjoyed walked through and checking it out, and we found the staff there to be very warm and friendly.
