The Bullock Museum is dedicated to excellence, accessibility, diversity and aims to become the leading authority on Texas History. Hosting your event at the Bullock Museum supports the museum's ongoing mission to become the leading authority on Texas history and provides funding for exhibitions and educational programs.

    American Leak Detection Awards Gala

    The Bullock Texas State History Museum was simply the perfect venue for our event. Lily Alpern is a fantastic host and the most knowledgeable resource for our every need.

    Briana Lacy-King from Rosemary's Catering did a fantastic job planning, preparing and serving our five course sit down meal. Everyone raved about the food.

    I highly recommend this venue and these most capable folks.
    Best regards,

    Great venue

    Lily was a delight to work with. Was quick to respond to all my questions/needs. Was on sight for the wedding and helped to make sure everything was perfect.
