The LaBelle exhibit was so interesting. This is a beautiful museum. I will return to spend more time there.

We spent at least 2 1/2 hours learning about Texas on the three floors. There was so much variety in the exhibits and displays, something of interest for all of us. Paid $10 senior citizen and student admission.

This museum will reinforce your knowledge of Texas history. The exhibits are very informative and there is just the right amount of information without being overwhelming. I highly recommend a visit to anyone.

a vey nice museum with good lessons about Texas history. An opportunity to learn much about the states development if you are so inclined to learn. If visiting the city for only a weekend, use it in case of rain. If here for a week or live in town, it is a must do, once.

The Bullock Museum is LOADED with cool and interesting facts. My daughter was in her junior year of home school and we went there when they held home school day. I love history and it was full of it. So much I can't even begin to describe. I believe there was 2 floor levels (we went a year ago). I'm... More

This is a great museum showing the history of Texas. I was especially interested in the La Belle ship. I had no idea the a French ship sank in the shallow waters off of Texas and was preserved for years in the mud. Plan on at least 2 or more hours to really see everything.

This is a lovely museum with excellent exhibits, and it's clearly very well maintained. I've heard of people having weddings here, which would be so fun. I liked that it wasn't super crowded on the day I went.

If you want to learn about the history and culture of Texas, this is the place to go. Plan on 2-3 hours to really get through it. Exhibits are chronological and there are videos throughout to keep it from getting tedious.
