UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures

 
 

Introduction

What is the legacy of your cultural heritage in Texas? Is there really strength in diversity or is it just a buzz word? Why do Texans take themselves so seriously? The museum answers these, and many other questions. Visitors to the museum will learn the stories of immigrants from around the globe who settled in Texas and contributed to what is today the 15th largest economy in the world. Located in HemisFair Park, steps from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the Tower of the Americas, and only a short walk from The Alamo and the Riverwalk, the museum is a popular destination for tourists, residents, students, researchers, history buffs, and shopping enthusiasts. The museum is family-friendly, and includes many hands-on elements for children.
