One of the best ways to get to know a new city is to visit the local history museum. And Austin is no exception.
But the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in downtown Austin is not your average history museum. From the IMAX to the interactive theatre complete with sights, sounds, and even a bit of rain (can this be Texas? Nah, it never rains in Texas…at least not since I’ve been here!) it’s genuinely fun!
Even the cafe was good…and cheap! A major wow for a museum restaurant!
If you’re planning to be around for awhile, join the museum. The free IMAX tickets alone make it worthwhile, and with three floors jam-packed with exhibits, you may need more than one visit to see it all.
