This was a nice place to see and had some unique items to look at. Unfortunately it is closed. It was bought out by a micro brewer I think. So keep you eyes out to see what happens next.

We first stopped next door at the adjacent tourist office/chamber of commerce. They were helpful, and then opened up the museum and gave us a brief tour. You can't get much more personal service than that. The museum was interesting; it has a surprising amount...More

An expansive museum that manages not to just cram stuff in from floor to ceiling. Plenty of space and time to properly look around and absorb. The buildings are as curious as the artifacts.

Traveling through Texas on our annual vacation. Best stop on Hwy 290! Personal tour through the museum made it even better.

Great place to take a break and tour. Maybe 30 minutes to go through the museum but a good opportunity to stretch your legs if you are traveling along Hwy. 77 or Hwy. 290 through Giddings.
