Though it'll soon change, the location of San Antonio Children's Museum seemed for years to be both a boon and a curse for the venerable kid-gathering spot. In a way, it seemed ideally located just a couple of blocks from the Alamo — great in terms of drawing tourists. But for them, as well as locals, parking proved to be a tremendous headache. That was then. After 20 years at its Houston Street location, the place is growing up. The name is changing to the DoMuseum and it's moving a few miles north on Broadway. No huge announcement parking-wise, but one can only hope for the best. Otherwise, there are many new promising improvements: Two stories of exhibits totaling 65,000 square feet and an additional 39,000 square feet of outdoor exhibits. The new location is expected to receive more than 300,0000 visitors a year.
