The quality and quantity of exceptional art and artworks in an easy to navigate series of buildings. A peaceful oasis in the middle of San Antonio. Well worth more than one visit to appreciate all that is there.

It’s around $20 for Adults and $15 for active duty military.My suggestion is to visit during free events and free general admission days! It’s not really worth the $20 entrance fees.
