The Bullock Texas State History Museum’s exhibition galleries and Museum Store reopened to the public on Saturday, Sept. 12 with key changes to limit the spread of COVID-19, including heightened safety protocols, new open hours and timed entry. The museum closed on March 17 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
“With more than 16,000 years of Texas history on view, we are committed to providing a low-risk learning environment for the community, teachers, and families,” said Bullock Museum director Margaret Koch.
New safety protocols include timed entry, allowing a limited number of visitors per hour into the Museum’s three floors of gallery spaces. Guests are encouraged to reserve their exhibition tickets online prior to their visit.
The Austin museum’s new hours, Wednesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., will also allow for additional cleaning while closed on Monday and Tuesday of each week.
