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.
We believe that all of San Antonio's children deserve access to the best educational resources. Learn about our Mission, Vision and our Inclusion statement: 

Volunteer Program Goal- To recruit, train and retain a regular pool of volunteers that represent the San Antonio community, are eager to share their skills and passion with children, and are committed to helping us achieve our mission and vision.
