  • The Institute of Texan Cultures was amazing, the exhibits are well documented and there is so much history, regarding the people who emigrated from all around the world to make their homes in Texas.  more »

  • The best place in Texas to find out who made the state what it is today. This is a cultural museum that highlights the diverse ethnicities that made Texas famous. Plenty of interactive artifacts located in open trunks for visitors to examine. Docents on the museum main floor from 10:00am to 12:30pm, Monday through Friday. Docent Gallery Hosts available on weekends.
  • It's all about Texas history & its 6 Flags stories ... There is short theater show .. I love it
  • Great place for history of san antonio. Loved it
  • Very friendly staff. It's kind of a big circle of exhibits about the different cultures of people who live(d) in Texas. It was a nice atmosphere, though I have to admit there wasn't really anything there I found very interesting or noteworthy. My Ukrainian girlfriend was a little sad they didn't have anything about Russians/Ukrainians, I guess the closest would be Polish. Anyway if you're interested in this stuff then sure, give it a visit.
  • This place is ever evolving and full of fun and education
