Public Programs for CPE Credit

The Bullock Museum hosts public programs that explore Texas history through thoughtful dialogue or a hands-on class. Led by experts, these programs further the conversation about the ever-evolving story of Texas. While they are not professional development exclusively for teachers, educators may benefit from attending these events and can receive CPE credit.

To receive CPE credit for any of the following events, RSVP to the event and also email so we can prepare your certificate.

If you're an educator and you'd like a pre-trip Educator Preview Visit, we'll waive your exhibition admission when you arrive. Just show your school ID badge at the ticketing counter and tell the staff member that you are here to plan a field trip. You can also explore current and upcoming exhibitions and events and peruse the Artifact Gallery online.
