All you need to plan a great day out at the Museum

The Bullock Texas State History Museum welcomes all visitors with exhibitions, films, and activities for all ages.

From the underground parking garage to the wide-open Lone Star Plaza, the Museum offers easily accessible routes and courteous staff ready to help.

If you have special needs or requests at any point in your visit, please talk with a Visitor Services staff member.


The underground parking garage entrance is located on 18th Street on the south side of the Museum. The cost is $10 for full-day parking (no re-entry). The parking garage is free after 5 p.m. However, garage hours and prices are subject to change on University of Texas at Austin (UT) football home game days.

Designated and accessible parking spaces are located near the elevators on each level of the garage. Elevators connect the parking garage to the Museum's ground floor entrance.
