The story of San Antonio starts 300 years ago at a beautiful bend of the San Antonio River, which is where the Witte Museum is as a beloved anchor of lifelong education. The Museum shares a narrative of Texas Deep Time on its 10-acre campus with a foundation rooted in history, science and South Texas heritage.
The Witte takes great pride in providing immersive experiences. In the Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg South Texas Heritage Center, you can go back to the days when vaqueros, chili queens and cattle kings roamed the wild and vivid land of the state. See Davy Crockett’s fiddle, and hear the stories of the cowboys who helped to build Texas.
In the H-E-B Body Adventure, there are four floors of healthy, interactive adventure for all ages. Get a Powerpass and learn how long it takes to walk (or run!) the 13-mile river walk path connecting the Witte to San Antonio’s historic missions. This exhibition empowers you to learn how your body works on a journey to sustained health and wellness.
As San Antonio’s largest museum, the Witte Museum keeps its content relevant by rotating blockbuster traveling exhibitions that enhances the museum’s permanent exhibitions and provides an engaging and enriching learning experience for visitors.
