Welcome to the Bullock Texas State History Museum Newsroom
The Bullock Texas State History Museum is the state's official history museum, collaborating 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.
More than eight million people have visited the Museum since it opened to the public in 2001, and more than 100,000 Texas schoolchildren and educators visit every year.
Special Exhibitions on view through this year are Comanche Motion: The Art of Eric Tippeconic and Rodeo! The Exhibition. New artifacts are continually added to the Texas History Galleries, bringing fresh stories to the Museum each week. The Collectors' Gallery features rarely seen artifacts from private collectors and the Texas Story Project and online artifact gallery bring Texas stories right into your home. Please note that a portion of the Bullock Museum’s first floor galleries, including the ship La Belle, is temporarily closed for a major transformation that opens this December. (Read more.)
Popular Events and Programs, such as H-E-B Free First Sunday, promise lots of fun for all ages. Members will get preferred placement, plus free exhibition admission and free documentaries all year long. A full calendar of events is available here.
