McNay Art Museum6000 N New Braunfels Ave, San Antonio, TX 78209
Beautiful grounds. Always seems to be new exhibits. One of the better more established museums in town.

Mission Espada10328 Espada Rd, San Antonio, TX 78214

The DoSeum2800 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78209
Super great place to take the kids. Tons of activities.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Visitor Center1 Lone Star Pass, San Antonio, TX 78264
One of my favorite things to do in San Antonio. I’ve taken the tour of the manufacturing facility multiple times. The last time I checked, the in-person tours were suspended due to Covid, but I highly recommend taking the in-person tour when they resume. You ride in a golf-cart type vehicle and are taken through the plant to see how the Tundra pickup trucks are manufactured from start to finish. Very interesting for those into STEM.

UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures801 E César E. Chávez Blvd, San Antonio, TX 78205
Museum for cultures of people in Texas.

Witte Museum3801 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78209
Natural history museum. Dinosaur exhibits. More cerebral than interactive.
