The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum
The museum delves into parts of American history that I was not aware of, like the Spaniard conquest of parts of North America. Texas' history is linked with Spain and Mexico, two nations that as a New Yorker I did not focus very much on before college.
The museum mixed photos, statues, and artifacts, like this chest with...stuff in it.
The Texas independent movement liked the phrase "come and get it". Their use of a white flag would help them while surrendering at the Alamo and asking to be part of the United States of America.
Modern Texas history is about oil, and a good part of the museum's third floor is dedicated to it. The oil industry turned the state population from mostly farmers to urban dwellers in a generation.
It's a fun time if you like history. Yee-haw.
