AS the only visitors at the time we were given a guided trip around the museum, it did not appear to have a focus to it, but was enjoyable none the less. The visit also included the old fire station since turned in to a...More

This is a nice local museum. Nice if you have lots of time and want to go to "one more site" while in Brenham. Not a lot to it, but we enjoyed it.

The Museum curator was extremely helpful and well informed about the founding families of Brenham. The exhibits were displayed well and we found them not only interesting but well laid out to understand the timeline of life in Brenham

Nothing out of the ordinary. Mostly just told the local history of a small town. We had just missed a re-enactment of a gun battle.

The museum gives visitors a lot to learn about Brenham and Texas history thereof, stuff I hadn't known about before (and I'm a native Texan!). The Giddings brothers (Brenham's founders)were quite remarkable and the museum gives you great information on them.
