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 provide exhibition, education, and experience design that empower all young learners through STEM, literacy, and arts education
We provide exhibition, education, and experience design that empowers all young learners through STEM, literacy, and arts education.
Kids choose two of their favorite interests—whether it’s the arts, space, or animals—and are given engaging information about possible future career paths.
Kids can use their job title to begin to role play. For example, a Holographic Space Transporter can operate a robot in space to fix a problem on a space shuttle. An Astro-Culinary Artist can welcome people to their 5-star restaurant on the moon.
The host organization can program the generator to give kids their first step to achieving this career. An Artificial Intelligence Designer can be encouraged to participate in a local robotics program. A Digital Nutritionist can connect with a local food bank.
This exhibit was developed in collaboration with SA2020, a local nonprofit that drives progress toward shared community goals through data indicators and public activations.
Kids and adults virtually build the city of their dreams using a variety of collectible tiles representing six core values.
Arts & Culture | Community | Nature | Education | Transportation | Health
When placed under a digital tablet, the tiles come to life revealing futuristic structures, buildings, and places. A flood occurs, and the children quickly learn which values their city needs. Only a well-balanced city, incorporating all necessary values, will survive and thrive!

From science fairs and summer camps to educator professional development, the educational programs of The DoSeum offer San Antonio’s early learners and their caregivers a parade of opportunities to dive deeper into the concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), the arts, and early literacy. All our programs are rooted in constructivist principles and The DoSeum’s mission to promote joyful learning and discovery—growing minds, connecting families, and transforming communities.
