Wheelchair Access

Exhibit galleries are fully wheelchair accessible, and offer multi-sensory, layered experiences for children of varying developmental stages, interests, and backgrounds.

Tips to Avoid the Crowds

Not all of us love the buzz of a busy Museum. The quietest times to visit tend to be weekday afternoons.

School groups usually visit weekday mornings, so if you prefer a gentler pace, schedule your visit for later in the day. And keep an eye on our calendar for special events, which are lots of fun but tend to draw bigger crowds.

Please understand that sometimes we’re just as surprised as you at the number of visitors on any given day.

Discovery Meadow

Make a day of it! The surrounding Guadalupe River Park offers ample space for picnics.
