“Mummy Exhibit was very interesting but not much else to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Outside of the mummy exhibit, there wasn't much else to see inside the museum. Very repetitive displays. The San Antonio Heritage Center next door was much nicer.

“A Great Muesum at the Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It you are looking for something interesting to do for a half or full day in San Antonio check out the Witte Muesum. Great exhibit on south Texas history and a mummies from around the world exhibit. Make sure you go through the adjoining park. Then San Antonio Zoo tis there too.

“Worth the trip.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Good exhibits about Texas. The mummy part was good but got little gory for my taste. Good animations and exhibits.
