“Unfolding the story of Texas”

Since 2001, The Bullock Texas State History Museum in downtown Austin has been engaging audiences, to interpret for themselves, the continually unfolding "Story of Texas." One of the most popular attractions in Central Texas, the Museum has been visited by over 6 million people coming from every state in the United States and every continent on Earth. Guests can explore the "Story of Texas" through three floors of exhibits that showcase artifacts from around the state; immersive special-effects films on history and culture in the Texas Spirit Theater; and Austin's premier IMAX Theatre. From the 35-foot-tall bronze star sculpture that greets visitors as they arrive, to the campfire scene in the terrazzo floor in entryway that features a campfire scene with enduring themes from Texas's past, every corner of the Museum proclaims the "Story of Texas" in a bold and new way. The driving force behind the creation of the Bullock Museum was former Lieutenant Governor Bob Bullock. The Museum is a division of the State Preservation Board.
