National Treasure – Thursday, July 1, Action-Adventure | 8 PM

Summer Movies on The Lawn are free to visitors, thanks to our sponsor Tom Schwenk and TGRE. Please make sure to arrive early as we have a set limit of the number of guests we can accommodate on our lawn. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and/or blankets. Concessions and drinks will be available for purchase.

This fun adventure film’s educational through-lines include highlighting the importance of primary sources and the way they allow the reader to be transported to a different time. The Bryan Museum is fortunate to have many original documents that hold strong historical significance including Moses Austin’s colony admission certificate to settle in Texas and a letter from Santa Anna to his commanders after the Battle of San Jacinto directing his soldiers to leave Texas immediately. Visitors will be encouraged to look at the primary sources in The Bryan Museum collection and think about what life was like in Texas from pre-colonization through the early 1900s.

*Warning this movie contains mild violence and profanity*
