Weekly Luncheon & Program

The Story of Texas
introduced by Lion Mac Ragsdale

It would probably take 30 days to tell The Story of Texas, so we're not going to attempt it in just 30 minutes. What we will try to do is tell you the story of the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, which tells The Story of Texas with 3 floors of interactive exhibits and an IMAX theater. Our program will tell us about this pre-eminent museum's creation, history, mission, and behind the scenes anecdotes from the person that was there.
