The DoSeum San Antonio
Where are we going today?
If only there was a museum dedicated to JUST children, where they could spend the day learning, being creative, and experimenting, instead of just looking and not touching.
Wait -there is! The DoSeum in San Antonio is the perfect place if you are looking for that fun experience for those inquisitive minds. After all, it's the ONLY children's museum in San Antonio!
All of the exhibits at The DoSeum are designed to give kids the perfect learning experience, all through play. All of the exhibits are unique, and interactive, and each offer something different!
Love to play outdoors? Head on over to the Big Outdoors exhibit! Here, 39,000 sq feet of interactive outdoor space awaits to be enjoyed! There are zones within the Big Outdoors, each specific to an age or activity, so you can find that is perfect for your little ones.
One of the areas is "noisy" and perfect for developing those gross motor skills. Here kids can explore, climb, crawl and run until their heart's content! Or they can move to the "quiet" zone where waterways, bridges and shaded paths all make an adventurous day out!
Kids can play with light and sound in the Sensations Studio, where art and science meet. They can learn about the environments and communities at Explore, where they can discover 21st century skills, and learn how we live and work in the present day.
Creative minds as young as 6 months can enjoy Little Town, where this role-play townscape offers opportunities for exploration and observation, and the Innovation Station is all about blocks, balls and machines, where future engineers and builders can really be in their element!
So why not take the kids to enjoy a day of playing, learning, and creativity at The DoSeum - what will YOU learn today!

Lots of fun for little tots. My daughter really enjoys going she just turned 2. It's a safe place to play for smaller children. I can't wait for them to open the new location!
Loved this place when I was a kid, loved to be here when on field trips with kids from the day care I used to work at, and love going here with my son. Who is gonna be turning 2

We took our 20-month- old grandsons yesterday. They enjoyed themselves, but the facility is dirty and dated. I wasn't expecting that. And it's certainly does not meet the definition of a museum. Nothing about it was educational. The kids enjoyed it because they love to play. But we were disappointed in it and probably won't go back at all or at least not very often.

I can't even barely give it one star. This place is DIRTY and boring. We counted ONE hand sanitizer in the upstairs. No real direction, nothing to learn. I completely agree with the other parents that say shut this place down. There is absolutely NOTHING educational about this place. The staff just stand around. Their was no story time, no puppet show, no times or anything regarding anything specific going on. They actually want to charge the same amount for that place for a family membership then the SA Zoo! If you want an educational place to...Read More

This place is horrible! I don't even know how it can be called a museum. It's dirty and run down. I saw nothing educational about it at all. They need to just close it down. Please don't waste your money on this place, go to the Witte museum instead.

I hope they find something much better with the space or remove the name "museum" from it.
