We were in town for a baseball game, but we decided to make it a day. Once we found out the ice age exhibit was going on we didn't hesitate. It was an enjoyable visit. The only thing that stopped it from being better was the rain.

They show pictures of dinosaurs and such on the website, but there is not a single thing at this museum that is even remotely that interesting. Waste of time and money. The kids enjoyed the health/treehouse part, but it was very crowded.

The visit to the museum Ice Age exhibition was pleasant. I had a coupon so it was priced just about where I felt that it should be ($13 with the coupon discount) to see it. The animals did move and make noise. I was able to get many great photos since I was the only person in there. Luckily the... More

Should have known experience would be less than ideal with 20 school busses outside. So crowded with schoolkids, my kids could not do any of the interactive stuff. The sign that says "turn at Funston Rd" for parking leads you into Brackenridge Park, which is great if you are very familiar with that park and how to navigate to the... More

Every year during fiest the museum displays dresses of past queen and duchesses. For anyone interested in fashion or the allure of the southern debutante this exhibit is a must. The museum is being renovated so the grounds are a bit of a mess but don't let that stop your visit

The Wild and vivid Land: Stories of South Texas portion of the museum was terrific. The Body Adventure was too crowded. We went during the week, but there were a ton of school trip kids there. That made it very crowded in portions. We enjoyed the log cabins and there is a lot of open space. The construction was very... More

So, let me preface this by saying that Witte is a GREAT museum.... When it isn't under construction. My parents took me there growing up a few times and it's great for all ages, interactive to hold kids interests and educational for mom and dad. So needless to say I was stoked now that my toddler is old enough to... More

When we visited in mid April there were quite a few pieces still under construction. What we did see was interesting and when they're finished in a couple years I could definitely see coming back to see the progress, but right now what was available was a bit of a disappointment for the entrance fee.

The Witte Museum is a small museum setting that is expanding. Much of the pleasant experience of visiting is the fact that it sits on the edge of midtown Brackenridge Park, & it is almost a blend between museum & botanical gardens. Just walking the grounds is worth the visit. The recent Jewels of the Crown exhibit was a lot... More
