The DoSeum is San Antonio's only museum just for children where kids learn by doing, creating and tinkering, instead of just looking and listening.
We invite you to visit our NEW DO It At Home page to explore DIY Activities, Storytimes, and Questions from Kids videos to keep you connected and your minds at play from afar!

Friday, March 13th update
Since opening our doors, securing a clean and safe environment for our Guests and Staff has been our top priority. We’ve taken great care to ensure our facilities are cleaned effectively and follow best sanitation practices to help prevent the spread of illness; today we continue to do so and remain vigilant to the latest COVID-19 updates from health officials.
In compliance with the Mayor’s Declaration of Public Health Emergency, and in the best interest of our guests and staff members, The DoSeum will be closed beginning today, March 13th through Friday, March 20th. This includes any programs/events scheduled for the week through March 20th.
While there have been no presumptive or confirmed cases of Coronavirus on our premises, we’ve made this decision out of caution and out of our commitment to protect guests, staff, volunteers, and the community at large, whose safety and well-being are our top priorities.
By suspending operations, we hope not only to protect our own community but to do our part in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 within the larger San Antonio community.
We are continuously monitoring the situation and following the advice of the local, state and federal authorities, which can be found at the following links:
Below please find a few links to have an open and supportive discussion with your child:
Please continue to check our website and social media channels for any further updates.
We appreciate your patience with these changes and thank you for doing your part to help keep The DoSeum and our community safe and healthy.
Our rigorous cleaning procedures include:
As we strive to provide families with a safe sanitized environment, we ask any potentially ill children and/or adults to please stay home to avoid the spread of disease and instead plan to visit us another time.
Steps you can take to help stop the spread of germs:
Please note that in addition to handwashing facilities in every bathroom, The DoSeum also offers hand sanitization stations throughout the museum for Guests.
If an area or object needs attention, we always encourage our guests to notify our staff right away. If you notice a toy or object that has been in someone’s mouth, please put it in the special baskets throughout the Museum so that we can disinfect, clean and dry them before they are shared again.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when purchasing your general admission tickets online. Your ticket purchase may be used within the calendar year. We hope this allows you to continue planning for spring or summer break visits without concerns that your plans may change.
Please note any existing refund policies remain. The above pertains to daily general admission tickets - all special events and program tickets are not transferable.
The Texas Department of State Health Services states that the risk for all Texans remains low. We will continue to follow guidance from health agencies to ensure that we share timely, accurate information with The DoSeum community in order to support our Guests, staff and their families.
