Fun place to visit and the ice cream is good too!

I stopped by during a break of a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The place is clean and the I enjoyed the ice cream (rocky road).

PIcked up t-shirts in the gift shop - matching "I get cranky without my bluebell" relaxing stop for a refreshing scoop of a favorite flavor.

The tours are still closed, but the gift shop and ice cream parlor are open. You can get a scoop of the world's best ice cream for only $1 per scoop. Not sure when tours will reopen. An added bonus for any baseball fan is the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame is located on the 1st floor. Mostly pictures of... More

We were disappointed that the creamery tour is currently closed, but the museum, ice cream parlor and gift shop are still great. You can't beat $1 scoops of ice cream in the parlor!! I finally found my favorite flavor Pecan Pralines and Cream again.

Blue Bell has an ice cream parlor where you can sample any of their flavors for only $1 per scoop. We took our granddaughter and we all had a great time.

Even though they no longer do tours of the creamery, there is plenty to see. What you don't want to miss is huge scoops of ice cream for $1 each.

My husband and I visited the Blue Bell Creamery on Monday, July 25, 2016. I was very excited about our visit and had been looking forward to it for weeks. Unfortunately, it was not at all what I expected. I knew the Creamery wasn't offering tours, but I was excited to see the parlor and store. Once we arrived at... More

I really wanted to take my kids here, but was sad to see that Tours are cancelled. Upon googling, I found an article from Jun2015 stating: "Blue Bell’s ice cream factory in Brenham is usually a top tourist attraction during the summer, but the tours have been canceled while the company works on getting listeria out of the facility." I... More
