This was the whole reason we went to New Braunfels! It might not be interesting if you don't like furniture, but if you do wood working or carving, this is a great place! You go on a guided tour through a house and a wood...More

If you are into Texas history this is a good place to spend some time. Small but interesting. Won't take but an hour or so to walk through. Museum itself is underfunded and so don't expect a typical museum experience.

Heritage Village includes many interesting historic buildings which were saved from destruction and moved to the site. The Breustedt-Dillen home houses the museum and contains a nice sampling of furniture shown in room settings. The docents were very knowledgeable and made our visit interesting.

Most interesting in you like to see well made handmade furniture from 50 to 100 years ago. The grounds are also photogenic

And amazing find in New Braunfels. Just off Church Hill Road is the Handmade Furniture Museum. 9+ acre site holds the mid 1800s Breustedt-Dillen home, which houses the largest collection of Handmade Texas Furniture, all produced by the German craftsmen who immigrated to the area....More
