We enjoyed our visit to this house museum very much. Our tour guide got off to a slow start but after we got moving, it went well. She had answers to all of our questions and was very polite. She seemed truly engaged with us and not just reciting facts like you'd get from an automated tour. She seemed truly... More

And amazing find in New Braunfels.

This little museum complex is full of beautifully hand-crafted furniture from the 19th and early 20th century. Mostly made in Texas by German craftsmen.

Today I went my my son to a field trip in the Heritage Village. The men and women who worked here were very helpful and patient with the fourth graders. The children were able to make dip candles and learned how to sew a button to a piece of fabric. They were then able to take home what they made.... More
