About the Buggy Barn Museum

Buggy Barn Museum is family-owned and operated and located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country of Blanco, Texas. Buggy Barn Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing a unique educational opportunity to step back in time to the late 1800s and early 1900s and view the carriages, wagons, and buggies that played such a significant role in the country's history, development, and heritage. 

Expansion of the museum's collection and promoting the preservation of these modes of horse drawn transportation and commerce are two of the museum's primary goals. 

The museum also provides excellent educational opportunities for school children (public, home, private). The museum staff is actively involved with helping make school field trips and group visits fun and educational.

Buggy Barn Museum provides many opportunities for people to get together for meetings, reunions, educational purposes, lunches, and even lessons on how to harness a horse or drive a stage coach!

Buggy Barn Museum is home to more than 100 buggies, carriages, and wagons. Among the unique carriages are a 1903 Studebaker, as well as an elaborate hearse. Buggy Barn Museum carriages can be seen in many movies such as "There Will Be Blood", "True Grit (2010)", "Lonesome Dove", "Hidalgo", "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter", "The Redemption of Henry Myers", "Deliverance Creek"; as well as the television series "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and "Revolution". There is also a gift shop with many items available including ropes, hats, glasses, coffee cups, purses, kids items, Amish made toys, Amish made lotion, and more!

Expansion of the museum's collection and promoting the preservation of these modes of horse drawn transportation and commerce are two of the museum's primary goals.

The Buggy Barn Museum is growing, but it is in need of help to expand. Not only do we provide tours and other educational experiences, but we also provide a scholarship to one or two local high school students every year. Buggy Barn Museum is an active part of the community and would love to expand and grow even more. There are many opportunities to help us achieve our future goals; donating to the museum, sponsoring the Hill Country Western Showcase, helping to promote our museum and showcase, and we are also working on forming a "Friends of the Buggy Barn Museum" and more. If you are interested in helping the Buggy Barn Museum become a highlight stop in the Hill Country, please consider donating or sponsoring.

The Blanco Western Showcase will help to make all this possible. We are very excited to have this event on the grounds of Buggy Barn Museum, and we are excited for the future growth of this establishment.
