My 5 year old enjoyed the museum and activities but it was a little too expensive. Not sure that we would ever go back. Especially with the new Doseum being right across the street and better priced.

The museum to go to in San Antonio. Huge variety of anthropology and natural history displays. Great art. Awesome interactive features for kids to make learning fun. The San Antonio river runs right through the back park. And I believe Tuesday afternoons are free!

My family and I visited The Witte Museum on a weekend getaway from Houston to see the Darwin exhibit and the other facilities. We were pleasantly surprised at what a nice Sunday afternoon we had here and the Darwin exhibit was fascinating. The mixed media used in the exhibit was a nice surprise with a vast collection of animal skeletons and some live animals as well. This was really a nice exhibit without being too overwhelming when you are accompanied by a 4 yr. old. The films were nice and the collection of orchids was really beautiful. I do not understand the other reviews of this museum but we did come on the day before school started, so we did not run into too many crowds. The interactive skits with the actors at the museum were fabulous and educational. The museum was well kept and clean and the price of admission is reasonable. We picked up a $2 off coupon at our hotel which included with the Darwin exhibit totaled a pleasant $30 compared to The Houston Museum of Natural Sciences total cost of $15 for just the exhibit halls and $27 for the one ticket to a visiting exhibition. I enjoy the HMNS; however, the Witte Museum was a nice surprise on a lazy Sunday afternoon for my family and I. We arrived at opening and did not even get to see the whole upstairs facility. It is a nice museum and very friendly staff. Maybe the time of day and day you attend the museum should be timed with any school field trips. This place was really nice for my child and my husband and I. We really enjoyed the Treehouse and the Ranching exhibit. It was really nice. The pricing was not that bad versus other museums in the area and compared to Houston, this museum was a nice change of pace. We really enjoyed the entire experience and I am sure your family will as well. We will come back when we are in the area.

I went on August 4, 2015 (Tuesday so luckily free admission), and it was the most boring museum ever imaginable. Without purchasing the entrance to the special exhibit all there was to see was a 10 minute Texas History exhibit and a 10 minute walk through the HEB tree house. Both were not very interactive for the kids and the HEB tree house asks for personal information (age, gender, height, name, photo) of the children in order to play on most of the activities. I went on several field trips to the Witte growing up and it used to be extremely fun and interactive. This was a very disappointing visit. Hopefully once the construction is over this museum will be more informative and interactive.

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE!!! Construction going on & 95% closed but full fee !!! I had gone here in 2011. I absolutely loved it. So I took my mom today but was surprised to find there was a construction going on but still I had to pay the full price. Then when I went inside 95% was closed, only just a half a floor Texas oil thing and HEB body adventure for kids was open.. Just that.. All the main hall, dinosaur bones, old indian relics, wildlife everything is closed for 2 yrs.. 2 YEARS!!!! Pls do not ever go here again for next 2 years!!!! please!!!!!!!!!

The parking was insufficient to meet demand. The special exhibit was the only one worth seeing. Seriously... among the exhibits I saw old beer bottles! The stuffed animals seemed worn and faded. The "artifacts" were like some rubble you would see in a questionable EBay auction...that is the ones that weren't replicas which were many. I saw too many kids running around like the monkeys in Jumanji, and even saw one with NO SHOES. The room housing the furniture exhibit had only one functioning interactive display. No kidding... I saw old liscense plates and Dr Pepper cans as parts of the exhibits...really? I can dig that crap out of my own trash. Glad I went on a night when it was free (I paid $6 for me and my son for the special exhibit). I was more impressed by the Alien Museum in Roswell. It had more real artifacts and was housed in a strip mall :/
