What I Love About Austin ~ Museums
The Bullock Texas State History Museum is one of the best museums in Austin. It encapsulates everything Texas. So if you are new to Texas, or have always lived here, you will be sure to find out something you didn't know about Texas. The museum contains the original "Goddess of Liberty", statue that was at the top of the State Capitol's dome for many decades. It also has greater than 500 artifacts from Texas' storied history. The museum contains two theaters, the largest IMAX screen in Texas and the 4-D Texas Spirit Theater. There is also a cafe and a large museum store that features many Texas themed items.
