Dive into the heart of Texas with Girlstart in partnership with the Bullock Museum. Explore the connections between history and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through interactive demos and hands-on activities for kids of all ages. 

Girlstart’s activities include:

Explore the Fashion Forward exhibit and make your own LED light-up wearable

Design a drag racing car as you discover the growth of Texas roadways

Experiment with wind energy as you measure wind speed and create a pinwheel

Engineer a device to take rock core samples as you get hands-on in the Texas Oil and Gas exhibit

Enjoy FREE exhibition admission all day during H-E-B Free First Sundays, held the first Sunday of every month. Families can explore the Story of Texas through three floors of exhibitions that showcase artifacts from around the state.


Please note: The State of Texas is building a new fully pedestrianized green space between the Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Texas Capitol. The Museum and its parking garage remain open during construction. Surface parking lots and most parking meters will not be available for the duration of the construction project.
