An awesome place to stop by, great tour with a great guide who was very friendly and knowledgable. A generous serve of any of their ice cream flavours at the end really topped it off, very glad we stumbled across it. Good for all ages, very accessible to elderly / disabled

Whenever my wife & I are in Brenham, the first place we always go is the Blue Bell Creamery. The creamery tour never gets old, the staff is friendly & informative, but the best part of the tour is at the end when you get a serving of ice cream. I don't know why but the ice cream always tastes... More

This is a short tour that takes less than 30 minutes but is so full of information. We learned so much about how ice cream is made and packaged. Our tour guide was very friendly and at the end of the tour they will let you taste as many kinds of ice cream as they have before you pick out... More

Old creamery that is still going strong in Brenham; nice reception area with displays to peruse while you wait for your tour. The tour takes about 30 minutes and you see lots of equipment and ice cream being packed for shipment. At the end, you get to choose a flavor to enjoy for free; extra scoop is $1. The gift... More

Neat little factory tour. Learned a lot of stuff about the packaging and shipping of ice cream, which was fun. Tour doesn't take too long. It is a decent little walk and there are stairs (a small elevator is available) but the tour stops every so often for breaks. And at the end you get free ice cream!

I went here two decades ago and it has so grown. The guided tour is very informative. The ice cream parlor is AWESOME! We tried only flavors that we have never had which amounted to over twenty tasting spoons, especially the flavors that are only available in the three gallon size and regional specialties. (try just the rum ice cream... More

This is a fun tour with ice cream at the end...after all, who does not like Blue Bell Ice Cream...the best there is in our opinion...with lots of yummy choices. The ice cream plant tour is both fun and interesting for adults and children. Tours not open on Saturday and Sunday.

Anyone from Texas can tell you, Blue Bell ice cream is the best! So when my best friend planned a visit for us to visit their creamery with our kids, I figured it might be interesting. It was! I'm not a huge ice cream fan, but if I'm going to eat it, I prefer the best and that's Blue Bell.... More
