Definitely worth a visit. I really wish the museum had a malacology section though. Texas has 3,359 miles of shoreline. Not sure how they missed that.

With the recent add ons to this museum, it has been one of the go to's in SA. If you have little ones, you will be walking a lot in going to the hands on portions of the museum. Very worth the visit!

We visited the Witte Museum on a Tuesday, as admission is free. We walked, but it is about 6 miles from downtown, be we like to walk. This place gives an excellent natural history of Texas.
