Please noteDue to TxDot construction, our North New Braunfels entrance is currently closed. To access the grounds, turn from North New Braunfels onto Cloverleaf Avenue, and follow the directional signs to Emporia Avenue (you can also insert 102 Emporia Ave into your GPS). Once you arrive at the gates, turn left at the first fork in the road and drive through the one-way street along the left side of the Jones building. The one-way street will lead you to the Museum entrance, where parking is available. The Austin Highway entrance can be accessed as usual, and will not be affected at this time.
