Our guiding tenet is "inspiring our youth by honoring our heroes." We support that philosophy with a rich variety of educational opportunities and programs.




Education is key to the Museum’s mission, so we are proud to offer a library of lesson plans that are linked to specific TEKS from Chapter 113, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Social Studies. The links to the appropriate grade levels cross-reference the supported TEKS by grade and lesson plan. We add new lesson plans as we develop them, so please check the site regularly for updates.



Lesson-related tours are self-guided, so download the Site map and the George Bush Gallery map to support your visit. Each lesson plan identifies areas on the maps that relate to the lesson.








Our annual symposia on the Pacific War attract scholars, historians, veterans and authors from around the nation.
