See the original wooden gate of the Alamo, one of the most prized possessions, at Bullock Texas State History Museum. The permanent exhibit spreads over three floors and tells the story of Texas, from the earliest Native American communities and Spanish missions to the struggle for independence and the modern era. Through numerous artifacts and multimedia presentations, you can see how the land was shaped and cultivated, and how different cultures and ideologies blended together to form the Texan identity. The museum regularly hosts temporary exhibits that cover different aspects of Texan culture and history. If you’re visiting with kids, check for the special programs for families.

  • I was very disappointed in the Bullock Museum! The Belle exhibit was closed. It lacked artifacts and was mostly reading. The flow was choppy. And, most of all, when it came to Texas disasters the only included The Storm of 1900 and the New London School Explosion! What happened to the Texas City Explosion? My grandfather died that day in April. I was truly disappointed. It's a beautiful building though.
  • This museum is great. The exhibits are informative and are interesting. We took our 4yo daughter here and she want bored once. There is something for everybody here. Even with part of the place under renovations it didn't take away from it a bit.
