Opened in 1926, Witte Museum is dedicated to telling the stories of Texas, from prehistory to the present. Located on the banks of the San Antonio River in Brackenridge Park, the Witte Museum is San Antonio's premier museum promoting lifelong learning through innovative exhibitions, programs and collections in natural history, science and South Texas heritage. A catalyst of the Broadway Cultural Corridor, the museum is a San Antonio arts and culture staple with a 300-year old history that contributes to the city's rich cultural legacy.
The museum's permanent collection features historic artifacts and photographs, Texas art, textiles, dinosaur bones, cave drawings, and Texas wildlife dioramas, in addition to nationally acclaimed traveling exhibits. Artwork in the collection includes sculpture by San Antonio-born Bonnie MacLeary. Massive exhibits of dinosaurs, People of the Pecos and Texas Wild, and other rotating exhibits fill the recently renovated space with history, storytelling and interactive, family-friendly fun.
