Spring Break at the Bullock
March 16, 2022 - March 18, 2022
Join us for creative activities exploring native creatures in the Lone Star State.
Discover precious species that call Texas home with unique hands-on activities highlighting a different endangered species each day, March 16–18. Texas Artist, Juliet Whitsett, will facilitate activities each day at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Juliet has been bringing awareness to Endangered, Threatened and Species of Greatest Conservation Need with her conservation art series THREATENED TEXAS. Work alongside Juliet to create works of art that will celebrate and inspire you to protect the incredibly diverse species in our home state.
Each day's unique activity will last 1 hour, and be offered at 11:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. Activities are designed for children five years and older. Tickets are $12/child or $6/member child. Caregivers are invited to create alongside their children. Exhibit admission is not included. Learn more about each day's activity and register for programs below.
Online ticket sales will close 1 hour before the event. Onsite ticket sales will be available at the Museum up to the time of the class if there is still capacity.
Join Keep Austin Beautiful for free family activities that will show you how to keep our great state beautiful for you and future generations to enjoy. Explore museum exhibitions and purchase tickets for a Spirit Theater or IMAX® film. Don't miss out on the IMAX® documentary film, Wings Over Water, which tells the compelling story of three amazing bird species—the Sandhill Crane, the Yellow Warbler, and the Mallard Duck—with extraordinary footage of their fascinating behaviors. All of them depend on the wetlands for their survival.
