Buckhorn Museum is more than just a normal museum, we're five museums in one! We have Horns, Fins, Feathers, The Hall of Texas History Wax Museum, and regular special exhibits unlike anything seen in any other museums in the world.
We don't like the idea that museums have to be stuffy, quiet places. How are you going to get excited about that! Get yourself a drink at our over 120 year-old bar and come on in! Ooh and ahh at the sites, get close to our world record holding trophy mounts, see our collection of oddities!

UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures is a museum and library located in HemisFair Park in downtown San Antonio, Texas. It serves as the state's primary center for multicultural education, with exhibits, programs, and events like the Texas Folklife Festival, an annual celebration of the many ethnicities that make up the population of Texas. The Folklife Festival has been held yearly since 1972.
The facility originally served as the Texas Pavilion at HemisFair '68 before being turned over to the University of Texas System. It is now the third campus of the University of Texas at San Antonio.
The San Antonio Children’s Museum is a unique and innovative educational resource dedicated to those we serve. Through interactive play, we inspire a journey of life-long learning, ultimately enriching lives and positively impacting the San Antonio community and beyond.
In 1993, San Antonio was the only top ten city without a hands-on, interactive museum specifically designed for children. At that time, many diverse groups began working together to make a children's museum in San Antonio a reality. Since opening its doors in September of 1995, more than one million visitors have explored the over 80 educationally and culturally based exhibits.
