This was an absolute gem!! We had the best tour guide through the museum. He was very knowledgeable and engaged our kids with lots of interesting details. The series of preserved homes was magnificent. The people were beyond kind. One of the office ladies offered us access to the river from her own home due to all the local water access being closed due to the pandemic. Go Here!! And it is all free. They do ask for a donation, but you will be glad to give it. This is one of the best museum experiences we have ever had and we have been to a lot.

Be sure to call before you go. If it is raining you won't get the tour (and we didn't) because you'll "track mud into the buildings". Wish that they had noted this on their website. All we got was a booklet and told that we can drive around and see the outside of the buildings - which took five minutes. We were on an extended vacation of Texas and drove an extra two hours to see... really nothing.

We stopped for a visit as my oldest (8) is reading books about the early settlers of New Braunsfels. It was absolutely perfect for him! I also had my other children (5 and 1) with me and the tour guide was perfect! She kept them attentative and kept the tour moving so they didn't get bored. I could see spending hours here, examing all the materials and facts within each building, but with my littles, we kept it to about an hour/hour and a half. It was perfect! Our tour guide knew her audience and adapted accordingly. Thank you for a wonderful visit and for preserving our history!

We really enjoyed it and our guide was fabulous! I was concerned about the tour with our 2 yr old but she involved him by making him the keeper of the keys and he helped unlock each of the buildings which kept him interested in moving through the tour. Great place to see the history of the New Braunfels area. Our guide took us through many historic buildings and shared the history of each. Our 13 yr old especially liked learning about the old car; he was amazed at the "key" that was used to start/wind up the car to get it going. It was hot to walk from building to building but they are all close together and some of them have air conditioning to cool off along the way.

George gave us a 2 hour tour of the Historic Buildings when we arrived and the visitor centre was closed. He is a volunteer who works on the homes and has a wealth of knowledge of all the buildings. We saw homes, the pool hall, music studio, cabinet shop and schoolhouse. The painted organ and beautiful old runabout car were highlights. We learned about the materials used to build the homes in the 1850's, the furnishings and how the German Immigrants lived. It was a journey to the past in Texas and well worth the visit.
