A must see if traveling through Brenham, especially if you love ice cream! The cost of the tour is minimum and reasonable. Our tour guide was very informative and interesting. The best part though, has to be the scrumptious scoop of Blue Bell ice cream of your choice! Absolutely delicious and great adventure for young and old!

We drove 90 miles from the other side of Austin to take this tour at a designated time slot. My sister had bought tickets in advance. They were very cheap. When we got there we were told that we could start our tour a little early since there weren't that many people for the 10:30 tour. That worked for us.... More

It was a very cool place,( no pun intended). My friend and I flew into Brenham to visit my brother and his family I'm so glad my nephew convinced me to go to Blue Bell to get some ice cream. Blue Bell you've made me into a fan of your ice cream for the rest of my life.

I took the tour and it was pretty standard factory tour stuff but it's informative and paced well-enough for young kids and grown adults. I didn't find the tour long or lagging and it was cool to see how all the ice cream is processed and packaged. The staff are ever so nice and very proud of this heritage so... More

I was invited to join four of my grandchildren in a tour of the Blue Bell Creamery in Brenham, Texas. Having lived in Texas for most of my life, I don't know why I have not already done this but my grandkids taught me something. The tour was guided by a young man who knew the answer to every question... More

Wonderful place to visit. The Ice cream is the best. I wish it was sold in the grocery stores in Utah!
