Since opening its doors back in June 2015, The DoSeum, the new incarnation of the San Antonio Children's Museum, with its cutting-edge technology and focus on learning-through-doing, has wowed, engaged and educated visitors of all ages. Sure, it's a wonderful place to take the kiddos — a place where they can burn as much energy exercising their brains as their feet — but it's also a place where mom or dad can enjoy a rejuvenating lift in their own curiosity and inspired wonder at the world we inhabit. The stunning facility, designed by local architects at Lake Flato to meet rigorous standards of sustainability and green building, features six distinct and permanent interactive centers for play/learning: The Big Outdoors, Little Town, Sensations Studio, Explore (a geography and culture exhibit), Innovation Station, Spy Academy and Imagine It! (a story creation center). Fusing elements often thought of as opposites, The DoSeum's exhibits and programming meld cultural education with arts education and a deep STEM focus with a push for creative and critical thinking. $12, 10am-5pm Mon-Thu, 9am-6pm Fri-Sat, noon-5pm Sun, The DoSeum, 2800 Broadway, (210) 212-4453, thedoseum.org.
