Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The grand lobby is gorgeous: The state of Texas is laid out on the tiled floor, arched windows let in plenty of sunlight, and there’s room enough for a grand celebration.
  • It’s conveniently located in downtown Austin, so it’s a breeze to reach from the Interregional Highway—plus the underground garage makes parking painless.
  • A 35-foot-tall bronze star sculpture greets you at the front doors and sets the stage for a spectacular soirée.


Parking in downtown Austin can be a pain... but not here! Bullock Texas State History Museum has a 400-car garage on-site for all your guests to park their vehicles—and they'll even allow the cars to stay overnight for guests who choose to leave in taxis or shuttles. There's nowhere else in Austin that provides a perk like this, we promise!
