Not worth $7 7/7/2008

Beautiful building, and the Imax is nice, but do not expect to find Texas history the way you learned it in school, or expect to learn anything new. There is definately a REVISED history told here with a slant. more

Love Imax But Selection Sucks 7/9/2003

Imax is always the way to watch movies...too bad the Bob Bullock imax doesnt get a current selection of newe movies .... the matrix reloded is out on imax and i would give my left hand to watch the movie!!!!!!!. Pros: Parking, Seating, Atmosphere Cons: Movies, Price more

It's Great! 12/29/2002

Austin needed this museum. Austin needed an IMAX. Great place to take out of town guests. The permanent exhibits can get to be a bit much for kids after a few visits. A lot of reading to really appreciate the exhibits. Overall, it's a great place. It's beautiful! informative, educational, fun, etc,etc. more

Great 12/3/2002

Everything is beautifully presented. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the movies are great... I don't recommend coming to see an IMAX movie in the morning on a weekday, though.. there are usually lots of school groups visitiing. Pros: good value, educational, exciting Cons: can be crowded, good parking more

bad, bad, bad 11/20/2002

the content is not that interesting, the display lights often block the placards so you cannot read descriptions without moving around a lot. it's just not that good. i think the institute of texan cultures in san antonio is better, even though the bullock museum does have more current/recent-event items Pros: in austin Cons: ostentatious more

The best 10/2/2002

I couldn't say enough nice things about it. I love museums but this has to be one of the best history museums...in any state! more

Awful !!!! 9/25/2002

The worst museum I've ever visited, and I've seen a lot. It's tiny, has barely any decent objects, and woeful displays. Don't go, trust me. Pros: Easy parking, Sounds interesting Cons: Pathetic displays, Really boring!!!! more

More Than a ""Quick Trip"" 9/1/2002

It could take days to fully explore all that's offered here (although that could get a bit of expensive). Great, varied exhibits. Pros: Variety of Exhibits, It's Texas, It's #1, Central Location Cons: Tickets a little high, Crowded more

It's culture 6/27/2002

The museum is interesting, but not worth the entrance fee. The IMAX on the other hand definitely earns it's ticket price. All in all it's a good place to find wholesome fun and add a little culture to your life. more

Star is born 5/16/2002

Leave it to Texas to fit as many stars as possible into one building. Don't get me wrong, the IMAX theater is very cool, but this museum seems more like a ""Hooray for Texas"" place rather than a ""History of Texas"" place. more
