Let’s start with the coolest art gallery to hit the scene in recent years: Hopscotch. The 20,000 sq ft space hosts a variety of immersive and interactive installations by the hippest local, national and international artists around. These exhibits rotate, so you could be in for a surprise - and no matter what selection you stumble upon, be sure to have that phone on full charge. It’s all IG gold. There’s also a bar on-site, and drinks are permitted in the gallery - meaning that those who aren’t big on the camera roll, can let the fun times roll, instead.
Museums may not be the first thing that comes to mind when visiting San Antonio, but rest assured, the city has come a long way over the years. At one time it was all about the River Walk and The Alamo, but not anymore. Today, they share the limelight among a heap of attractions, food, outdoor activities, and family fun, and there’s more en route.
What’s great about San Antonio’s museums is that they cater to a broad spectrum of tastes, and what’s more, they’re surprisingly good for an under-the-radar city. There are art museums that are architectural masterpieces in their own right, funky new warehouses with futuristic immersive creations, and even old-school, slightly scary, displays of um, Texan trophies (you’ll see). For a dose of weird, provocative, and awe-inspiring, take your pick from our list of the 11 best museums in San Antonio.
