Venue Spotlight | Bob Bullock Museum

By September 19, 2012Reviews, Venue Spotlight

In search of a truly Texas event space with both elegance and history? Look no further than the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. This spacious museum is available for receptions, dinners, award galas, or any special occasion. Recently added to this list of possibilities: wedding ceremonies. Weddings can now be entirely held at the museum, with a large patio or intimate mezzanine lobby available for a quiet ceremony followed by a large reception space. 

The Museum’s spacious Grand Lobby includes the entry Rotunda, featuring a beautiful granite-trimmed staircase encircling a colorful terrazzo design.  This rotunda would be perfect for mingling around cocktail tables, before moving into the airy first floor lobby, which boasts a 50-foot granite floor map of Texas. The first floor lobby accommodates 400 seated and 800 for reception. Rental of the first and second floors is enough space for 600 seated and 1200 for reception.

Rosemary’s Catering is the Museum’s preferred caterer with expertise in food preparation and presentation. The use of another caterer is permitted with prior approval from the museum’s event office and an additional fee.

Rental rates for the grand lobbies range from $1,500 to $3,000. Additional rental spaces available also include The Story of Texas Café & Veranda, Texas Spirit Theater, Museum Exhibits, Boardroom, Classrooms, and Lone Star Plaza. The museum’s parking garage offers free parking after 6:00pm.
