We popped in at a whim while walking. It is small, as it was a one-room church from the past. Displays included a German Bible from the 1600's, as well as displays and photos through time including when the railroad was built to Fredericksburg (see...More

Great find for history buffs; not your typical tourist trap. The sculptures, dioramas and artifacts were in excellent condition.

This building is a reconstruction from 1935 of a previous 1847 property which stood nearby. We were there on a Sunday and couldn’t gain entry. It stands in a small Park off Main Street and is well preserved.

Free entry to a small but informative museum which gives a good understanding of why and how the area was developed by German immigrants in the 1840’s. A lovely building

Here is where the German settlers worshiped in the 1800's when settling Fredericksburg area. The history is well worth the visit. It is in the center of the Market Place Square in the center of town.

This small museum holds interesting artifacts and the lady working the day we went was very interesting to talk with. Also, include a small gift shop. The garden area behind the museum is worth making this stop a part of your Fredericksburg visit.

The history of the German settlers in Texas was well organized and very informative. I felt like this should have been included in Texas History classes. The information made our visit to Fredericksburg more meaningful.

While the rest of the family had their lunch in the park, my youngest granddaughter and I visited here. It was fascinating, with items loaned or donated from the descendants of the original German families who started this town. Well worth a visit, which is...More

The museum was free (free will donation) and the staff person on duty was very friendly. It's a small museum, with not many exhibits, but it gives a nice little over-view of Fredericksburg's past. There are some interesting and unique gifts for sale there. It's...More
