  • This museum was a lot of fun for my whole family. There were exhibits that captured the interest of all of us (two adults and one eight year old). There are a few interactive exhibits, but this is pri...  more »
  • I didn't know this museum was here and so was surprised when my son suggested a visit. What a place! The exhibits are all on one floor and so very easy to get around, especially helpful for the frail ...  more »

  • Fun source of information about the history behind Texas and its development over time. Some sources, such as cultural group growth and decline, were only updated through 2010. It would be nice to see more current records. We went with a large school group and had tour guides throughout the trip, plus we had the pleasure of visiting the outdoor buildings where employees/volunteers were on hand to make it more educational and fun for the class. I would like to see how interactive the location would be with a family-size group. On one hand, we would be able to take our time reading and reviewing the displays, which we couldn't do as a group. On the other, would we even be allowed to visit the outer buildings? Could we still obtain the same level of detail if those tour guides/employees/volunteers weren't present? I would certainly recommend this location for planned visits with large groups (7 years and older) & anyone wanting to learn about Texas in a fun environment.
  • Loads of Texas history, and hurry because word on the curb is they close soon, like for good. Provides historical look at native Texans, buffalo soldiers, various countries migrants and their contributions. A great way to invest a few hours.
  • One of the best museums across the State of Texas. Thank God it opened the last day before my departure from San Antonio. They give discount to students and staff are professional and kind to visitors. You will definitely learn new things about the Texans culture.
  • Had a great time! Its $10 per person unless you have a school ID you can get in totally free. Parking was a little hard to get to with the construction and traffic so plan ahead. Parking is free, the tower is not its 8$ for that unless you walk to the other side and just leave your car there in their parking lot. Everything was good except the African American side it mostly talked about jordans and snap back hats and todays hairstyles. The only thing that was vintage was the headwraps. They have lots of culture background for it to be covered with 20 century shoes and hats something that could be seen at river center mall.
  • Fun day at the Asian Festival. TX State Korean Culture Club rocked the house!! Awesome dance performances.
