Museums: Located in the historic Market Square, Museo Alameda has the unique honor of being the very first formal affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution outside of Washington D.C. Its hot pink exterior fits perfectly with the Market Square atmosphere. Latino history in America is honored here and beautifully curated. Museo Alameda has access to -- and uses -- exhibit materials from the Smithsonian. With San Antonio's colorful heritage, the story of Latinos in America couldn't be in a more ideal setting. Ongoing exhibits feature art, live performance and various collections. This is a great place to visit if you want to experience more to San Antonio than the tourist stops on the River Walk. It allows you to really learn about the cities beautiful heritage.
