Happy Birthday, Governor Briscoe!
Saturday, April 22 and throughout 2023
The Briscoe Western Art Museum is tipping its hat to one of its namesakes, Texas Governor Dolph Briscoe, on what would have been the governor’s 100th birthday. And if you were born in 1923, share the Governor’s birthday or name, come on in because the Briscoe wants to celebrate you with free admission to the museum.
Throughout 2023, the museum is offering free admission to anyone turning 100. Don’t have that many candles on your cake yet? If you were born on April 23 – Gov. Briscoe’s birthday – you’ll receive free admission any time you visit this year. And if your name is Dolph or Briscoe, stop in and visit any time – you will receive free admission to the Briscoe as often as you’d like!
The admission special kicks off April 22 in time to celebrate Earth Day, when the museum is hosting a day of arts, crafts and education to showcase how everyone can help preserve the American West. A rancher and businessman who had a deep love of Texas, Governor Briscoe appreciated the great outdoors and the vast beauty of the West.
