Plan Your Visit
How to have a great Bullock Museum experience.
Let history inspire you as you connect with Texas stories told by ever-changing artifacts, rare documents, photographs, and special exhibits. Experience 4D special effects films in the Texas Spirit Theater. Check out the latest blockbuster movies on the biggest screen in Texas in the IMAX® Theatre. Shop for distinctive gifts at the Museum Store and enjoy the eclectic menu and great view at the Story of Texas Café. Don't forget to snap a photo in front of the iconic bronze star on the Lone Star Plaza as a keepsake of your visit.
Please note that a portion of the first-floor Texas History Gallery is now closed as an exciting 12-15 month renovation takes place during 2015 and early 2016. The second and third-floor Texas History Galleries remain open. IMAX® Theater and Texas Spirit Theater schedules are unaffected.
