Located on a beautifully wooded 11 acres in historic New Braunfels, the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture houses a stunning collection of structural and domestic artifacts from some of the first European migrants who settled in the heart of the lone star state. The museum is especially lucky to possess a great many locally crafted pieces from New Braunfels' own historic German immigrant community, including several exquisite creations of locally famous Tischlermeisters (master carpenters) Heinrich Scholl jr. and Johann Michael Jahn that were handcrafted in the traditional mid 19th century Biedermeier style.

  • Interesting insight into early settlers' life. Docent gave a very interstitial g commentary. Especially the story of DNA evidence for 3-4 pieces of furniture being made from one tree!  more »
  • This museum is much more than handmade furniture. The furniture is clearly an important component, but it is just a springboard to learning a lot about life on the Texas frontier in the late 1800s...  more »
  • Great place to visit and very friendly staff. Be prepared and take some water with you because during the summer, the buildings can be very hot. Would encourage others to visit this little gem.
  • Great museum! We had an amazing going through the different rooms and houses with the owner. She was very knowledgeable in the german history. We learned a lot! Thank you!
