H-E-B Free First Sunday: Trains

January 7 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Explore the world of trains at the Bullock Museum.

Enjoy FREE exhibition admission all day during H-E-B Free First Sundays, held the first Sunday of every month. Activities are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families can explore the Story of Texas through three floors of exhibitions that showcase and tell the history of artifacts from around the state.

Hear train whistles blow and axles grind as Tinplate Trackers of Austin’s miniature locomotives chug along tiny rails set in intricate scenes. Children will be mesmerized by miniature-sized model train engines whirling around tracks laid out in the Museum’s lobby. Adults may channel their inner engineers as they talk with model train enthusiasts and view elaborate model railroad scenes, including detailed cities and towns, rural landscapes, and a mini carnival.
