A trip took me through Brenham and I had to stop. Made the last tour of the day. Make sure you come early. After not having ice cream for a while, I felt like I was in heaven. Vanilla is my favorite.

We stopped by this attraction since we were already in Brenham during the holiday break. They did not have a tour that day. We wanted to sample some ice cream and realized that they only had two flavors. It was a little bit disappointing. Call them before heading there if this is the only reason you are visiting Brenham.

My best friend & I visited just the week before they temporarily closed. Absolutely hated the trouble they had. The tour was very interesting. The staff was very friendly and informative. When you arrive, you get a ticket with a number on it & have to wait for your number to be called for a tour. We had to wait... More

This is a great place to visit. It is a beautiful facility and they have a great gift shop. You can even get ice cream. They also have a baseball museum on the ground floor of the gift shop.

We decided to go to Brenham, TX., after running errands in College Station. The drive was lovely and the lush green countryside beautiful. It was easy finding Blue Bell Creamery, unfortunately the tours were not being offered. However the ice cream parlor and country store were open. After browsing and buying from the store, we proceeded to the parlor for... More

If you are in Brenham you have to stop at Blue Bell for a scoop of ice cream. Where else can you get a scoop for a dollar. Plus, they have a little "Blue Bell" gift shop to get a tee shirt or hat!

OASIS took us to the small but lovely town of Brenham, famous for our Texas Blue Bell Ice Cream. We toured the facility: CLEAN, FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT, MODERN, A THRIVING BUSINESS. I was impressed by all the shiny-clean & wonderful machineries- bringing out varied tasty & creamy smooth ice cream. The visitors are donned with paper Blue Bell caps, as they... More
