Museum Admission and Film Ticket Prices

Experience Texas history through exhibitions and films

Explore the ever-changing artifacts and exhibitions throughout the Bullock Museum, and enjoy an IMAX® film on the biggest screen in Texas.

Museum admission allows entry into all gallery spaces and special exhibitions, and we suggest allowing 45 minutes for each of the Museum's three floors. Museum admission is not required to attend a film. Film tickets must be purchased separately, and times are subject to change.

The Bullock Museum's exhibitions are open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The IMAX® Theatre is open for documentaries during exhibition hours and for IMAX® feature film showtimes Wednesday through Sunday.

For the safety of our visitors and staff, we have implemented new protocols to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Please view our FAQ for more information.
