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.
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
