; Sure, the Witte stole Native American bones back in the original Maverick days, but everyone was doing it. It was called archeology. The 21st-century version of the Texophile museum sticks to less-controversial cadavers, such as mummies and the wildly popular dinosaur and Chinese bodies exhibits. This is a great museum for parents, whose kids will find something to pester them about repeatedly (the small working sluice and dam, the H-E-B Science Treehouse, the Fiesta gowns, etc.). A planned expansion that will fully embrace adjacent Brackenridge Park and the San Antonio River flowing through its backyard is guaranted to increase its weekend-adventure appeal.
