|About these ratings|
If Six Flags and SeaWorld seem a little too daunting, take your kids out for some educational amusement at the Witte Museum. This often-overlooked site delves deep into natural science, anthropology and Texas' history with exhibits featuring everything from dinosaurs to mummies to tarantulas. You can also take an in-depth look back through Texas' intriguing past by exploring the historic log cabins located on the grounds. And don't forget to check out the interactive exhibits about the San Antonio River, exhibits which include a hands-on water-works display and the popular H-E-B Science Treehouse.
Some recent visitors do say the Witte Museum isn't worth the time or the money. One TripAdvisor user writes: "This is place to visit only if you have nothing left to do in San Antonio."
Sitting next to Brackenridge Park, the Witte is open all day Monday through Saturday and on Sunday afternoons. For more information on hours and admission costs, check out the museum's website.
