“Texas History in a Nutshell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

The museum has plenty of information from Texas History and this area of Texas. So much history happened around the Brenham, Bellville, San Felipe area. Texas Independence was penned, Steven F. Austin stayed in the area... it's just a great place to visit. Spring is a beautiful time in this area as well. You don't want to miss this gem if you are passing through.

“Took my granddaughter to the museum, park and farm area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

She loved it! Everything was an adventure. She was a little young for the museum (at 4), but she dug the farm, it was right up her alley.

“Give in to your inner Texanophile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

This neat little museum is out of the way and worth the drive. You see where and how the Republic of Texas started. The building is shaped like a star.
