Welcome to the Bullock Texas State History Museum Newsroom
The Bullock Museum is the official history museum of Texas and collaborates with more than 700 museums, libraries, archives, and individuals across the state, nationally and internationally, to display original artifacts and produce exhibitions that illuminate and celebrate Texas history and culture.
Nearly 8 million people have visited the Museum since it opened to the public in 2001, and nearly 100,000 Texas schoolchildren and educators visit every year.
Exhibitions are at the center of the Bullock Museum's offerings. This season, the Museum is proud to provide an in-depth look at the history of electronic gaming, the rise and fall of prohibition, and the tradition of rodeo in Texas.
New artifacts are continually added to the Texas History Galleries, bringing fresh stories to the Museum each week. Visit our Collectors' Gallery or learn more about new artifacts on view in an online gallery. Stay tuned this fall for an announcement about the opening of a compelling experience that will shed new light on early Texas history.
Popular programs, such as H-E-B Free First Sunday and the Summer Free Family Film Series, promise lots of free family fun this summer. Members will get preferred placement in the free films and summer education programs, plus free exhibition admission and free documentaries all year long.
