They have a new museum and changed their name to the Doseum. Go see it. It is very different and has a lot to do for adults and olders kids too. It is not just for little guys anymore. Music, sound, lights, science, water play area, playground, building, tot area, etc.

First of all I want to warn my readers that one will not be allowed in this newly opened museum unless accompanied by a child. If one is lucky enough to have a child to accompany one, a veritable treat awaits. The museum is labeled a "Doseum" because it is totally interactive. The activities run from a low tech sand...

Though I know the Museum is moving to a new location and this one is showing its age, we took our 2 1/2 year son here for a few hours and he had a blast climbing, exploring, and playing on the three floors of activities. The volunteers and staff were very friendly and helpful for the most part and the... More

Very disappointed in this location. This may be great for kids 5 and younger but not older than that. Most of the 'attractions' are displays and nothing is really interactive. No art supplies out, no hands on experiences besides kids shopping at the kids HEB market. Water interaction was a shallow tub with water. Lots of displays for kids to... More

As this is the last month in their location, before going to a new location, this activity is great for adults to take their children. Tons of fun and defuses a tremendous amount of youth energy!!

Great place so much to do. The children's mart was so cute and interactive, My daughter especially liked getting a shopping trolley getting items and scanning them through. The whole setup is wonderful. Will definitely visit again on my next trip to Texas.

Once the Children's Museum moves to its new location on Broadway sometime this summer (2015) it will be perfect! The present location is downtown San Antonio on Houston, which is a parking and access nightmare for SanAntonio residents since we lack a good public transportation system outside the downtown area. Visitors in the area hotels will have access to the... More
