  • The most obvious museum hides the history of the Texas area from the point of view of the great dinosaur, and also shows the seemingly wilderness of the earth, with the rich biological polymorphism, and some of the regions that can be used by students to try and move their hands.

  • This was a very nice museum but just wasn’t for us. I would recommend it for others to try especially with kids.  more »

  • Beautiful natural history museum with lots of regional artifacts and special exhibitions that get switched around occasionally. Their level of craft and technology works great with the space and the grounds and building are beautiful. You can learn lots about Texas history before modern settlers and experience amazing dioramas of Texas wildlife. Another great San Antonio Museum stop.
  • Well-designed, thoughtful layout with a wide variety of exhibits and beautiful, shady grounds. From dinosaurs to space travel, pollinator paintings to exhibits depicting people from Texas' past, kids hands-on activities to plenty of room for strolling or tables and benches for sitting, this museum is a great way to spend a relaxing few hours. Note: few women included in Texas history, lots of snakes (eek!) In nature exhibits.
  • Interesting diversity of content and context. Maybe a little too diverse, at least for my tastes. The H.E.B. Body Adventure didn't seem to fit and in with the overall Texas heritage and history themes, for example. Still an interesting museum and beautiful grounds. Good place for kids and adults alike. Numerous interactive exhibits for kids.
  • Visited the museum and loved the interactive installations! It kept my 8yr old boy engaged and learning. The facility is well maintained and has revolving exhibitions. The perminant exhibits include those of natural, scientific and cultural significance. The admission is reasonable there's free parking and they offer military discounts. They even host birthday parties. Well definitely be back!
  • My daughter had a great time. Beautiful museum with interactive exhibits. We didn’t have time to explore the whole museum because it was so big. The special planet pioneers exhibit was nice but there were too many people and you had to wait in line to interactive with the exhibits. The body museum was very nice.
