Lots of cool stuff. I thought $12 was a bit spendy though. Most stuff I've seen on little house on the prairie. But glad I went it's pretty cool to see history.

We were greeted by two kind and knowledgeable ladies working the front desk. She shared her stories from the rich heritage of Fredericksburg and elaborated on the museum we were about to experience..an experience it was. Well preserved, the establishments we're filled with automated audio narrators which really threw your imagination back in that time. 100% would recommend.
Fantastic museum with a self-guided tour. I loved learning about the history of German settlers in Texas. Each building has a motion sensor that triggers a recorded story describing the building or room. Most of them were recorded by descendants of the settlers. Entrance fee is very reasonable.
