Mission and Vision

Mission and Vision

The DoSeum is much more than a children’s museum.

It’s a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play. The DoSeum offers exhibits, programs, camps, classes, and field trips designed for all learners, encouraging young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy. Originally founded as San Antonio Children’s Museum, The DoSeum has grown over the past 25 years to become a premier leader in informal education, while still staying true to the mission of connecting families and transforming communities.

As a 501(c)(3), The DoSeum is committed to accessible and free programming to low-income San Antonio-area children, with a goal of serving 10,000 kids from Title I schools annually. At 68,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, The DoSeum’s wow-worthy facility, opened in 2015, inspires each Guest to cultivate their curiosity, ignite learning, and discover the power of play.

Our Vision

As a premier informal educational resource, we cultivate curious, innovative learners capable of mastering the opportunities of tomorrow. 

The DoSeum Experience is for every child, every family, every community.  We are a DoSeum for ALL. 

More than a children's museum, The DoSeum is an essential community resource dedicated to bringing the joy of learning across San Antonio and beyond. 

Diversity, equity, access, and inclusion are central to our missions as we welcome future scientists, builders, explorers, educators, artists, writers, and all other DOers through the door.  

The DoSeum welcomes all ages, religions, sexual orientations, sexes, genders and gender expressions, and learners of all profiles and abilities to explore, create, and play. 

The DoSeum embraces all races, ethnicities, cultures, caregivers, and family structures as we celebrate joyful learning and discovery.  

The DoSeum is a place for all languages, nationalities, countries of origin, and political ideologies.  We grow as a community when we come together. 

The DoSeum Experience is for everyone, regardless of financial means.

Y'all means All. And here in San Antonio, in the heart of Texas, we welcome y'all to The DoSeum.
