The DoSeum

The DoSeum is open – please read their re-opening information!

The DoSeum logoThe DoSeum, in San Antonio, Texas, 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.

Semmes Spy Academy, DoSeumSemmes Foundation Spy AcademyWith an emphasis on digital literacy and digital citizenship, the new SEMMES Foundation Spy Academy teaches spies how to utilize and communicate information across digital platforms, and how to interact safely and respectfully online, while also bridging the gap between the digital world and the real world through cooperative play.Innovation Station exhibit, DoSeum

Innovation StationInnovation starts with tinkering. From blocks and balls to simple machines, Innovation Station gives kids space — physically and mentally — to imagine, create, and build. The focus is on the process, not the product. Children are encouraged to evaluate, try, fail, re-evaluate, and try again.

Little Town exhibit, DoSeumLittle TownOrganized by a mix of businesses along a wide, encircling boulevard, Little Town includes child-scaled immersive environments — each a familiar, themed space where kids learn by role-playing the adults in their lives.
