Senator Sylvia R. Garcia, District 6


As Texans we should all be proud of our State Capitol, which averages more than 1.5 million visitors a year. Senator Garcia encourages all of you to visit this beautiful National Historic Landmark and take advantage of the many educational services it provides. Tours are available through the Capitol Information and Guide Services, as well as the Capitol Visitors Center located in the historic General Land Office Building on the Capitol grounds.

While in Austin, the one of the best ways to learn about Texas is a fun and educational trip to the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Experience this museum dedicated to the history and the spirit of the Lone Star State. Enjoy 41,000 square feet of the interactive exhibits, special- effects Texas Spirit Theater and Austin's only IMAX Theater as you immerse yourself in "The Story Of Texas."
