  • LOL! lots of kooky stuff to see and wonder why in the world would they do that? Kids 6 and up I would say would say this place is "Cool"! Great family fun for a few hours!  more »

  • Kind of a tourist trap, but hey, at least it's interesting! I just went to the gift shop and I thought their jewelry was actually pretty cool. Much of the stuff ( like plushies and toys) was overpriced but that's kind of to be expected. Pretty well stocked and clean, plus the staff were helpful and chill. Good place for kids like 9 yrs and up.
  • I grew up watching the TV show. The visit was a trip down memory lane for me. The exhibit is nicely laid out. There are plaques next to the exhibit to explain what you are seeing. Some of the exhibits can be scary for young children.
  • Such a cool experience!!! My family and I loved it here! The staff were able to assist my whole family (bus load) LOL And everyone enjoyed this place. They have some creepy stuff that frightened the kids but the adults and teens really enjoyed it!
  • Awesome! The only reason I won't 5 star it is because of how confusing it was laid out, I do not recommend coming here too often either, the it wouldn't be fun. But this place is very family friendly (unless you have a family of 12 who all split up) The tunnel on level 3 kept me busy for at least 30 minutes. The elevated walkways and exotic artifacts added to the experience. So cool!
  • Had an amazing time last time I went. All the interactive exhibits were fun and spent hours looking at their collection. Great way to spend the rest of the day after walking the Riverwalk or visiting the Alamo. Definitely will be visiting in the future.

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.
