The Witte Museum is proud to partner with the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) to present unique exhibit highlighting many remarkable archeological finds discovered as part of the San Antonio River Improvements Project.

Coinciding with SARA’s 75th anniversary celebration, this exhibit boasts rare artifacts including fossils, stone tools and even a 122 year-old preserved message in a bottle. Illuminating the story of the abundant natural and cultural resources that make the San Antonio River so vital to our region, If the River Could Talk gives visitors insights into the river’s ecology, the relevance of each artifact and the archaeological science that unearthed these treasures. Many of the rare artifacts on display are being seen by the public for the first time since their excavation.

If the River Could Talk: 12,000 Years of Life on the San Antonio River is generously supported by the San Antonio River Authority, the San Antonio River Foundation, the James Avery Charitable Fund and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs.
