Brenham Bus Depot


The Brenham Heritage Museum is currently operating out of the Brenham Bus Depot while the museum’s main building is undergoing extensive renovations.

Due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are closing the Bus Depot Gallery to all public access until it is safe to re-open.

Given the evolving nature regarding COVID-19, BHM operations may change as we receive updates from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We will continue to post updates here and on social media.

Current Exhibit
Maifest Exhibit

Since 1881, a colorful scene has unfolded in Brenham each May. This festival, known as Maifest, is a celebration highlighting German heritage, as well as showcasing the youth of the community. Except for several years during World War I and World War II, this event has been held annually since 1881, and includes elaborate coronations and a parade in downtown Brenham.

Our Maifest Exhibit, originally scheduled to be on display at the BHM Bus Depot, has been shifted to a virtual format due to closures amid the Covid-19 pandemic
