Blue Bell Creameries has beautiful grounds, a museum, a tour and a parlor. The grounds in the front are very well-kept and nice. There is a great photo opportunity with the dairy cow. The parlor has the most delicious ice cream. A large scoop is only $1. They offer so m any good flavors. Our favorites were Cinnamon, Peppermint, Vanilla, Cookies & Cream and Rainbow Sherbet. The only flavor we didn't care for was coffee - little too strong. I personally really enjoyed the Texas High School Hall of Fame on the first floor of the property. It highlighted the finest player to come out of Brenham High School - Cecil Cooper. Cecil was a 5 Time All-Star. He won Gold Gloves and Silver Sluggers. One of his Silver Sluggers bats was on display. It was neat to see Hall of Famers from the two High Schools I attended. Paul Janish from Cy-Creek and Robert Copley from Elsik. Paul Janish played on the College World Series Champion Rice Owls. Astros Nolan Ryan and Lance Berkman were highlighted. Their museum is very nice too. There were no tours at this time. The Blue Bell Creamery is awesome and we will return one day.

Some of the things that we had hoped to be able to do such as the tours have been discontinued but the museum offers a nostalgic walk through the history of Blue Bell ice cream and the creameries. Lots of interesting photos on the walls and memorabilia to see. Some videos to give you some history about the company. There's also an ice cream parlor to try many flavors of their ice cream. Several that are available at the ice cream parlor. There's also a gift store to get some clothing, mugs, bowls, etc at reasonable prices. All of the team members were very friendly with the staff being mainly young women in the parlor. You won't spend more than an hour here, but you will have the chance to try different flavors for only $1/scoop It's a generous scoop too!

Visitors center wasn't open when we booked our stay in Brenham but found them open when we arrived. Loved both the history and the ice cream tastings in the Ice Cream parlor - Yummy!
