Create an itinerary including Bullock Texas State History Museum
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.

  • Great place to get out of the heat. Some dated items, it's it's museum! Great gift shop with a very nice staff. The museum itself is laid out very nicely start at the top or start at the bottom. Loads of fun for the kids as well as adults. Parking is available nearby and an easy walk. The first Sunday of every month the museum is free for all!
  • Lots of interesting exhibitions, well organized, really inspiring of Texas history and cowboys. I really enjoyed the short films of Texas history, such a beautiful and well made firm, the rattlesnake story was funny and the surprise part got me jump out of the chair! Amazing 3D technique and projector. love the storyline.
