  • I'm not sure how I've missed this wonderful museum in all my trips to San Antonio over the years. The Witte is an excellent museum with a good variety of educational and hands-on exhibits. The...  more »
  • The museum is well done. There were not a lot of exhibits but the ones they had were very well put together. The price is in-line with what they had.  more »
  • Very beautiful building and cool fossils in the main entryway. Despite the huge building, the museum feels fairly small. There's a section on Texas fauna, and San Antonio history like cowboys and the flour mill but that was about it. Very well constructed though and good exhibits, if we're looking at quality over quantity. The fossils were definitely my favorite part. The back outdoors area is really nice and provides some good spots for reflection and resting your feet, but again there's not much out there which I had hoped there would be.
  • I toured the Witte Museum today with my husband. We are 24 and 25 with no kids and still had a great time! While much of the museum is geared towards being "kid-friendly," there is plenty to enjoy and learn from for adults. It has everything from prehistoric exhibits, to native Americans, to western cattle drivers, and plenty of historical exhibits about Texas specifically. Many of the displays are interactive. My husband and I even enjoyed the HEB Body portion of the museum. When you enter, you type in your name and email to get a "power pass." You use that pass to participate in a few physical tests (like heart rate and energy exertion). At the end of each test/activity, you scan your pass again and then finally it prints you out a card with all of your info on it. The grounds surrounding the museum are beautiful and well-kept, and they have several spots meant for just sitting and enjoying the natural scenery. There are lots of picnic tables if you wanted to eat on outside on your visit. This is a great place for all ages!
