Get out your corsets and chain-mail and join the fun and fantasy in the medieval village with scads of performances each day, plus food, shopping, live music, and unparalleled people watching. Weekends, Feb. 8-March 30, 10am-dusk. $20 ($10, kids).
It's kinda like office hours except you can meet with the official history of the Texas government. That means access to newspapers, journals, books, manuscripts, photos, old maps, and other resources is at your fingertips. Perfect for that dissertation on Texas history or genealogical snooping. Second Saturdays of the month, 9am-4pm. Free.
