The boys and I had the pleasure of visiting the Witte Museum with a group of San Antonio area bloggers for a Mommy and Me Blogger Meet Up. We headed out sans the hubby, which is never an easy task with three boys. I honestly try not to take them solo to events because the little ones require so much one on one attention it makes it heart to do much of anything else. My 18-month-old and 3 year old sure know how to show off sometimes, making me wish we had stayed home. Needless to say, I survived and look forward to my next field trip outnumbered. There is so much to learn, see and touch at the Witte Museum.
5 Reasons to Visit The Witte Museum
The South Texas Heritage Center
The newly added South Texas Heritage Center at the Witte is a beautiful building busting at the seems with vaqueros, outlaws, a come to life trucker and so much more. From the minute we stepped in we were immersed in South Texas Culture as if we just stepped into the 1850’s. The hands-on exhibits were perfect for my boys.
A great place to watch reenactments of a day in the life of an 1800’s cowboy. Sitting under the shade trees on a rock slab with the boys was a perfect way to end our day. We relaxed, made friends and soaked in the Vaquero and cowboy action.
Roping, branding, reptile touching, amphibian learning and adorable baby watching. We were truly in another world when we stepped into the Witte.
The Treehouse exhibit
The interactive house of science experiments. Perfect for all ages and lots of to do’s for the kiddos. From learning about energy to sound waves and so much more the boys were intrigued.
Always Something New
Exhibits are constantly traveling through. The Witte is a fabulous place to re-visit and learn something new every time. The Darwin exhibit is in town through September 3 so you still have time to catch the evolution.
