  • We LOVED this place! Definitely stop if you're interested in seeing things from early Texas history, very entertaining
  • Awesome place. A lot of history found there. Staff always ready to assist. Clean restrooms. Nice gifts to purchase for yourself and others. Prices small or larger depending on your choice. Take a tour. The Pioneer Museum should be on your lists of places to visit in the beautiful historic Fredericksburg Texas.
  • Cute little museum for a few hours of walking and looking at all the artifacts. The employees there were super nice especially because my husband and I came about an hour before they closed. Would highly recommend! We'll definitely come back our next trip and make sure we get there for a little more time.
  • This is a cheap spot to stop by and learn how people lived back in the time that the Germans settled in this area. The video is a great place to start to give you a great idea of the area and time before you explore the rest of the grounds. All of the people there were very knowledgeable. The last working the counter interacted with our kids very well. Even taught them some German! It's not a "must see" but it is still a fun and informative stop for a pretty cheap price. It's a good starting point for your Fredricksberg trip.
  • Love this place and the history. 7yr old son enjoyed as well
