OUR PICK: The DoSeum
, 2800 Broadway, (210) 212-4453, thedoseum.org
Compared to all major San Antonio museums, the DoSeum is still in its infancy. But since opening a mere two years ago, this next-level children’s museum has worked hard to keep up with (and whiz past) its competitors in this category. The DoSeum is rooted in hands-on creativity: whether it be through a child-sized town (astutely named “Little Town”), a mapmaking station, a tinkering space, or a high-tech spy academy. And this past year, the museum introduced a new artist-in-residence program, where Texas artists can collaborate with museum staff to produce a unique exhibit. The first resident, Richard Armendariz, created an exhibit that used folktales (illustrated by the artist) to teach children about storytelling and acceptance of other cultures. A reminder: you don’t need to be a parent or a babysitter to stop by the DoSeum — it’s guaranteed fun for all ages.
