    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,

    The museum was the perfect place for our wedding reception. We had 300 guests attend. We had a cocktail hour, seated dinner and dancing. They was ample space for everyone. Jamie Nicholson and her staff are amazing to work with. Very professional group of people. It was a beautiful night thanks to them.
