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.

You will not find an extensive collection of items to rival heritage museums in larger cities. Then again, that isn't why you are visiting a small town. Take the time to talk to the curators and the people in the museum. Their stories about the...More

The museum is what you might expect in a small town like Brenham. Housed in a former post office, it houses local history and artifacts.

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.
