We are in town for a brief time and have tried to go to this museum two times. First time they were closed to the public for a private party. Second time was on a beautiful Thursday afternoon. They were once again closed. I don't know why. We give up. I think it's a private museum.

Our tour guide George, was very knowledgeable and answered any and all questions we asked about the artifacts in the village. Its great to see that someone is taking care of the German heritage and not letting the old buildings be destroyed and people are donating items to the Conservation. If you have time take the stroll through the village.... More

This little historical village represents a huge amount of effort, as all the buildings were moved to the site to avoid destruction. The history of the town is fascinating and the buildings themselves were wonderful to explore. Our tour guide was extremely congenial and informative. The location is a little hard to find--our GPS didn't quite nail it and we... More

We stopped and visited the homestead where they had all the furniture crafted by the original settlers. Our guide, Marijane Stafford was great. She did a great job explaining all the artifacts from the original settlement.

If you want to really get a feel for what the Texas pioneers lived like, do NOT miss the New Braunfels Conservation Society's Conservation Plaza. We had a very personal informative tour by the curator and left wishing we were having a wedding there just to walk under the lighted rose arbor.

During a recent visit to San Antonio our family reunion group drove to New Braunfels (30 miles from San Antonio) to tour the New Braunfels Conservation Society German Village called Conservation Plaza. The village is 14 buildings that have been restored and furnished to represent a German village of 1849 - 1881. Each building, school, house, barn, outhouse, church etc.... More
