  • I was there, by happy chance on the Museum's birthday, so admission was free. (I left the equivalent of admission in the donation jar). Lots of school groups (which I think is great). The permanent co...  more »

  • Glad we were able to visit on free Tuesday, but we’re not art people. Not sure I would have been as happy another day. Lovely art work, artifacts and sculpture. We don’t go to many art museums so wasn...  more »

  • Wow really cool museum. They had their annual art show exhibit going on and the artwork was amazing. If you're into old Western firearms and Western antiques this place is pretty cool in that respect too. Very nice people working there. And the $10 tickets are good for all day come/go.
  • Great venue and friendly staff to work with at the Pavilion, if you are planning to host your next event here. The reason 4 stars instead of 5 its due to the following experiences: first their Museum staff contact us before the event. when questions had already been answer to their event managing department. Than the day of the event we had security at the venue try to make changes for us. Like really!? Cmon your job is to secure the event, not tell us where a table or stage should go. Other than that, I'm willing to give this place a second chance to host another event for our clients.
  • Loved the museum. I found it interesting that in Texas guns can be considered art. I wish it was true of the rest of the nation. Santa Anna's sword was awesome to see, along with the rest of the displays. they have buckaroo bags for kids to keep them entertained. It was a fun excursion.
  • Great event venue and excellent museum if you are interested in the American West. Every single event that I have attended here has been awesome.
  • A great museum if you like western art/history. The place is also very beautiful and the staff is friendly.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
