Start your San Antonio Spring Break at the Witte Museum!

Treat your children to an exploration of Texas wildlife, innovation and art through hands-on activities and demonstrations all day long. Create paintings just like people did thousands of years ago, discover what you need to survive on the moon and more.

Get interactive at the activity stations and enjoy demonstrations by our education and public programs team all afternoon.
