  • Took my wife and two teenagers. My wife and I enjoyed it more than the kids. They have a small history museum which we enjoyed but the kids could care a less. After that we went to the store, observat...  more »

  • Beautiful site, lots of free parking but came w/ Handicapped parent's and although lots of spaces, the place was packed. Spring Break so lots of families and even more kids. The observation deck is nice, interesting, but not like the tours, again , crowded. Ice cream is $1 for a good size cup of any flavor. The gift shop is pricey, but unique items. Pretty day so ever was outside. A freebie, and a fun place to check out.
  • We had an amazing time here! It’s a great place to visit if you’d like to know the history of Blue Bell. There’s a small museum inside with an organized timeline showing how it all started. Also you can check out the observation deck, see the production line, and watch how the ice cream is made. It was really cool! In the end, you can try a scoop of ice cream for only $1. (It’s a generous scoop by the way. Check out the pic!) The staff was very welcoming and friendly which only made my visit more enjoyable. I highly recommend visiting this place!
  • Great place to visit! They've stopped doing tours, but have an observatory deck where you can watch the whole process. A guide is stationed up there to answer any and every question we had (really, we could NOT stump him). Be sure to stop at the ice cream counter to get a sample of their flavors, and don't miss the Milk & Cookies if they have it!
  • I really love what they've done with the place. My wife and I took our family here and had several scoops of ice cream. The way they show off the creamery now is fun but I remember as a kid is going through more of the factory. But I do understand that with everything they've been through they are now being more careful so people don't get sick.
  • Really loved the place. Even though they dont do the plant tours any more, you could catch a glimpse of their production line from the observation deck. Then the best part, $1 ice cream scoop, which is very generous and a lot of flavours to choose from. Wanted to try 2-3 flavours but after finishing the first scoop I was full. Definitely a place to visit if you happen to be around Brenham.
