Cool Summer Nights 2019: Time
July 19, 2019 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Forget about standing outside in the heat of the summer! Come inside to the Bullock Museum for three FREE evenings celebrating culture, community and Texas history.
You're invited to be a part of the second year of this event series. You're guaranteed some great nights out this summer with one program each month in June, July and August!
The second Cool Summer Nights of the season highlights the many ways in which the American experience has been impacted by inventions, technologies and cultural movements in conjunction with the exhibition WW1 America.
Discover the Museum in a social and comfortable atmosphere.
