Bullock Museum Exhibitions and Films

Exhibitions and films extend classroom learning and reinforce the curriculum.

  1. Texas History Galleries - Three floors of original artifacts and hands-on interactives are presented chronologically:
      On each floor, students will discover the story of people and daily life, and the growth of Texas's economies, technologies, and cultures. Groups may begin a visit on any floor. 
  2. Special Exhibitions - These exhibitions offer a focused examination of history, culture, and science. You can use lesson plans and activities in conjunction with a Museum visit to extend classroom learning. After the exhibitions have closed, use the content materials as supplementary activities to classroom curriculum. Special Exhibitions rotate frequently, so be sure to check the dates when planning your visit.
  3. Films - Both the Texas Spirit Theater, a 4D experience, and the IMAX® Theatre offer a memorable and fun way to understand history, science, and culture.
