Bullock Texas State History Museum celebrates namesake's 94th birthday with free event July 9
The Bullock Texas State History Museum will celebrate its namesake's 94th birthday on Sunday, July 9, with a free, family-friendly event open to the public.
“The Lt. Gov. would have loved seeing everyone enjoying all the wonderful experiences the Bullock has offered through the years,” said Margaret Koch, the director of the Bullock Museum. “We are so happy to be able to continue to honor his legacy and vision for a place committed to sharing Texas’ incredible history, and we invite visitors of all ages to celebrate with us.”
The Bob Bullock Birthday Bash event will feature free exhibition admission from 10 am until 5 pm with access to all galleries, including The Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of African American Art: Works on Paper.
The celebration will also include interactive activities for all ages until 2 pm, with two readings (11 am and 1 pm), of Bullock’s favorite children’s book, "The Little Red Hen."
Bullock served as the lieutenant governor of Texas from 1991 until 1999, serving under governors Ann Richards and George W. Bush. In a political career that spanned nearly 40 years, he is credited as being among the main influences of modern Texas government, as well as championing the preservation and exhibition of Texas history.
