The DoSeum




The DoSeum

The DoSeum, formerly known as the San Antonio Children’s Museum, opened on June 6, 2015 and became a place where children are inspired to use their inner creativity and curiosity to learn through play. We are a museum where kids are encouraged to run, play, and create. We offer exhibits designed to help children workout their bodies and minds. The majority of the exhibits at The DoSeum boast a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focus, which we integrate with literacy and creative arts concepts.  We feature exhibits unlike those found in any other children’s museum in the country, including an interactive robot named Baxter, a spy academy filled with math challenges, an interactive puppet parade, a musical staircase, a Children’s River, and a significant outdoor space with plenty of water features, shade, and an ADA-accessible tree house.  From solar energy and water recycling to habitat restoration, The DoSeum was designed and constructed with a thoughtful, sustainable approach and offers a number of features to make it both kid and environmentally friendly.

We serve as an interactive learning laboratory for all young children, from birth to age 10. It is a place where children can discover, learn, explore, and create.  We are a museum set in a park and are situated on 5.5 acres and offer more than 26,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space, and more than 39,000 square feet of outdoor exhibit space, offering one of the largest outdoor areas for play among children’s museums in the nation.

Our Mission- Through joyful learning and discovery, The DoSeum grows minds, connects families, and transforms communities.
Our Vision-As a premier educational resource, we develop innovative thinkers capable of meeting the challenges of the 21st Century.
We believe that all of San Antonio's children deserve access to the best educational resources.
