Great visit to the Mecca of ice creameries in Texas. A nice visit (but no tours still, July 2017), and better ice cream at $1 a scoop.....scoops were XL! Wish they would open up tours, but worth the stop just for the awesome ice cream.

As for hygenic reason, the actual factory was not openned for public but we could still see the display and enjoy the icecream which they sold for a dollar a scoop. Plenty of souverniors to buy too.

Even though there was not a "tour", we felt we gained a lot of info from museum and viewing platform. The gift shop was fun, and we LOVED the $1 cup of ice cream. I couldn't eat it all.

The creamery doesn't have tours, but they have an observation deck that you can watch the process through. The staff was very knowledgeable....answered all our many questions. We learned so much. Was surprised when he said they aren't a 24 hour operation. Fun for kids...More

The grandchild were visiting from Arizona and decide they wanted a cool treat. Of course living just minutes from Bluebell here in Brenham that's where I took them. They love going there and the cups of your choice of Ice Cream from a good selection...More

Great history of Blue Bell in the visitor center. We remembered a lot of the old commercials and jingles. $1 scoops available for sale and the observation deck is definitely worth a look. Staff was pleasant and engaged us in conversation and explained what they...More

If passing through Brenham, take a break and stop in at Blue Bell for a generous serving of ice cream (only $1 per generous cup) at the country store upstairs. Nice clean bathrooms also. Open six days per week, closed Sunday.

Visited the Blue Bell factory for the first time. No tours are being done but they have observation deck to see process. And of course great ice cream to sample. Worth the trip. Kids would really enjoy swing the process.

This has never happened to me so I am not sure. Bluebell is the best ice cream I have ever had....especially their homemade vanilla. The opposite of cheap flavored ice cream. I'm sorry you had a bad experience.
