Three floors of exhibits -- three themes as big as Texas history: Land, Identity and Opportunity. The exhibits at The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum will surround you with the sights, sounds and (sometimes) smells of Texas history. Each floor of exhibits highlights important chapters in The Story of Texas through objects, media programs, and recreated environments. Founded as a non-collecting institution, the Museum exhibits bring the Story of Texas to life through an ongoing process of changing historical objects as loans are returned and new ones are received
