San Antonio can often be overlooked for its arts and culture offerings, but as the city is becoming one of the best places to live in the United States with a low cost of living and a burgeoning food and arts scene, you can bet the museums are doing their best to keep up with the demand. With two dozen museums, there's a breadth of delights to be found here.
Thanks to the newly-built Children's Museum, the DoSeum is easily one of the best museums in San Antonio right now, that is if you have children. Kids of any age will love the amazing offerings that range from the creative to the educational, touching on art, science, math and more.
The Witte is another museum that is strongly family-focused. Located in Brackenridge Park, The Witte is constantly featuring unique, engaging and interactive exhibits that appeal to all ages. The Bodies Revealed exhibit, for example, enables people to see the complex inner-workings of the human body. They also host a successful dinner series called Salud! Culinary Night that brings an educational component to cooking and eating great food.
For world-class art and international exhibits that span from Egyptian artifacts to modern art, San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA) can't be beat. They showcase numerous visiting exhibits and host lectures and special events throughout the year.
