    It is in front of the Tower of the Americas, so I suggest that on the same day you saw the Tower and the Institute of Texan Cultures. It is modern. Interesting because it shows the cultures settled in Texas. To leave or arrive, the view of the towers is impressive. A video projected on the dome, worth watching it.

    Expected too much, but it was just okay. Exhibits were not as engaging as had hoped. Nice place to visit on a hot summer day.  more »

    This museum has so many wonderful artifacts! Every single artifact there is in wonderful condition and you are able to learn so much about so many different cultures that reside in Texas. So many different cultures reside in Texas that I want even aware of, but I was able to learn about them at the museum and gain a deeper understanding of them. This a great place to visit and feel connected to all of humanity.

    Great times! My 6 year old wanted to look, listen, and play with all the interactive displays. Last time we were here, we rushed though it. Even our 4 year old seemed pretty engrossed in some of the videos. So glad we actually got to spend some quality time and also check out the Pinocchio exhibit before it closes next week.

    This place is an amazing piece into the world of Texan history. Before I came here, I did not realize so many cultures were weaved into the state's tapestry. The guides are full of knowledge and you leave feeling like you just stepped out of another world, at another point in time.

    Is a great museum with a lot of history about Texas. They have free days every second Sunday of the month along with an event, sometimes being performances.

    Incredible displays of the various ethnic groups that settled in Texas. Fun special events for both children and adults. Docents help interpret many of the exhibits. Don't miss the replica of a one room school school house, outside. I highly recommended this museum to visitors and San Antonio residents alike.

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.
