The mystique of Texas has surrounded the Lone Star State from its inception. Built on frontier land, which spans roughly the size of France and is largely desert, the sheer size of the state defies belief, while its history proves to be one of strong historical independence, identity and perseverance. The Bullock Texas State History Museum, named for the state's former Lieutenant Governor Bob Bullock, serves to tell the “Story of Texas,” and does so with three floors of interactive exhibits, a special effects show and Austin’s only IMAX Theater.
A model of modern museums and complete with a well-designed layout and easy walk-through access, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in downtown Austin gives visitors the complex history of Texas in a fun, engaging manner that keeps people coming back to this, the only Texas-based museum in all the state’s wide borders.
Admission for adults is $13; Students $11; Children age 4-17 $9; and children under the age of 4 are free. IMAX Theater admission is $9-14 for adults and $8-12 for students.
The museum also features a store and cafe for visitors to enjoy.
