The Handmade Furniture Museum was a bit difficult to find -- I gather there have been changes to the nearby roads in recent years. Once we found the place, it was only 45 minutes before closing. Nevertheless the lady in charge welcomed us and conducted...More

This hidden gem (it sounds trite, but that's what it was!) was a wonderful stop on our tour of New Braunfels. There are several different types of houses on the grounds. The Museum is filled with beautifully crafted furniture made by the German settlers. The...More

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

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

German heritage and preservation at its best. Tour the facility, see how New Braunfels was in the beginning, and try to attend Folk Fest in April. You won't be disappointed.]

This little museum complex is full of beautifully hand-crafted furniture from the 19th and early 20th century. Mostly made in Texas by German craftsmen.
