The DoSeum: Minds at Play
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, birth to 10 are encouraged to discover, learn, explore, and create.
