From Culture to Caves Kids Are Easily Entertained in San Antonio



If you're visiting San Antonio for the first time and you have the kids with you, rest assured there is plenty for them to do here!

For families who like to learn together, there are a few museums the kids are sure to love. The Witte Museum offers a bunch of kid-friendly interactive exhibits with learning components, such as fitness and cooking demos. The DoSeum is another great children's museum for all ages. With their new location and amazing exhibits, it has become a family favorite. 

If your kids love Western movies, take them to the Briscoe Western Art Museum so they can experience some true Texas history and see some stunning artifacts, such as Santa Anna's Sword and Pancho Villa's saddle. 

For an even more unique experience, take them to the underground wonderland at Natural Bridge Caverns. If they love animals you can head over to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch afterwards and see wild (but not too wild) animals in their natural habitat.
