Keep Kids' Bodies and Minds Active This Summer at The DoSeum, San Antonio's New Museum for Kids

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2015) - Young minds have a new place to grow in San Antonio -- The DoSeum. Opening June 6, the city's museum for kids offers limitless opportunities for children to discover, explore, create and learn. With world-class exhibits and sustainable, thoughtful architecture, it is poised to be one of the leading children's museums in the nation. The museum will educate by using every inch of its 104,000 square foot indoor and outdoor space. Nearly 60 percent of The DoSeum's exhibits focus on concepts in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while others emphasize literacy and the creative arts to create a diverse learning experience.

At The DoSeum, kids will be able to use their inner creativity and curiosity to feed their appetite for learning as they choose from an impressive menu of exhibits including a state-of-the-art robot named Baxter, a spy academy filled with math challenges, an interactive puppet parade, a musical staircase, a Children's Stream and significant outdoor space with plenty of water features, shade, and an ADA-accessible treehouse. Indoors, guests can explore six main exhibit areas: Sensations Studio, Explore, Innovation Station, Imagine It, Little Town and Spy Academy.

"From the day we open our doors, The DoSeum will be one of the most beautiful, exciting and interactive children's museums in the entire United States," said Vanessa Lacoss Hurd, CEO of The DoSeum. "It will be a place where children tap their inner creativity and curiosity, and where science, math, technology and art become a playground for their minds and bodies. Our hope is that The DoSeum will spark a genuine zeal for learning that they will take with them through childhood and beyond."

The DoSeum is expected to attract over 400,000 visitors annually to experience its innovative approach to education, and is another influential addition to San Antonio's cultural corridor along Broadway that includes the Pearl Brewery complex, Witte Museum, Brackenridge Park, the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, the San Antonio Zoo and the San Antonio Museum of Art and the McNay Art Museum.

"Children's museums can be powerful players in a community's learning landscape," said Laura Huerta Migus, executive director of the Association of Children's Museums. "The DoSeum will certainly confirm San Antonio's place in the global network of cities striving to create civic environments for healthy children, empowered parents, and vibrant workforces," she added.

Visitors to the museum will also enjoy amenities including free parking and an onsite cafe� featuring healthy, kid-friendly meals. Summer hours at The DoSeum are Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturdays 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.; and Sundays 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. For more information, visit TheDoSeum.org.
