The Maya exhibit was really good!

We didn't go to any other exhibits except the Maya, but that is all we went to see. It had several stations for kids (and adults) to try their hand at building a Mayan temple... read more

The Maya exhibit is very well done. Having spent time in Mayan country in Central America, I was impressed at how authentic the exhibit was. Good balance between visuals, videos, and interactive. Interactive appeals to the kids but maybe they could be controlled a little better? Could be an important teaching moment on reverence.

Disable access, free parking, fee to enter. I only go obviously when there is something that myself or family like to see. It is great place for children and elder to go together. Normally when they have the body or the animals is when I go with the family, you can buy a membership but it's too costly unless you... More

We didn't go to any other exhibits except the Maya, but that is all we went to see. It had several stations for kids (and adults) to try their hand at building a Mayan temple, lifting a Mayan ball game ball, etc. as a teacher, I really enjoyed the exhibit!

We got to see the Maya Exhibit & the Native American Exhibit & the kids loved it. My 10 year old niece & 15 year old nephew loved the HEB Science Treehouse.

Bought full package including Aztec and Native American exhibits. Exhibits were kind of small but cozy and nice. Various kids interaction activities with nice photo areas throught including a mini riverwalk. There was quite a bit of new construction going on in several areas, so obviously expansion plans underway. Maybe after expansion(s) are complete would be worth the price, but... More

Consistently. the Witte is SA's (San Antonio's) great cultural asset, with long standing presentations,... More

I had been to the Witte years ago, and wanted to share it with my kids (3 teens and a 6 year old). I got them excited about it, only to find out (AFTER paying admission) that the best parts of the museum are closed. That meant no dinosaurs and no mummies, and a lot of disappointment. What we did... More

We went yesterday for the 4th of July. Really loved the Mayan Exhibit. Very hands on, with plenty of opportunity to learn more about these people groups. Just know that once you are on the campus, no place is available to eat, unless you count vending machines and candy bars in the shops. We had to leave and go across... More
