Annual Fiesta Exhibit: Wonders of Space
• Within a span of six months, October 2023 to April 2024, San Antonio will have witnessed a rare marvel—two solar eclipses! In honor of these unusual events, the Witte Museum is celebrating for an entire year in a series of events, programs and exhibitions under the umbrella Wonders of Space.
• This coming Fiesta, the Witte will urge visitors to look up and discover the magic and mystery of the skies and outer space as seen through the lens of the Order of the Alamo coronation robes. Intricate sparkling gowns and trains across decades of Fiesta celebrations depict celestial scenes, from the 1936 Princess of the Glorious Night to the 1969 Duchess of the Lunar Landscape. Look to the skies this spring with the Witte Museum!
• The Witte Museum is one of the only locations in San Antonio to learn about Fiesta’s history from its origins in 1891 with the Battle of Flowers Parade to today’s Fiesta San Antonio Commission events, and the Witte is also the home for the Fiesta San Antonio Commission’s poster collection from the past decade.
• The Witte’s annual exhibition of Fiesta gowns, accompanied by informative interpretative signage, sparks the imaginations of visitors of all ages and from all backgrounds.
• Founded in 1926, the Witte Museum is where Nature, Science and Culture Meet, through the lens of Texas Deep Time, and the themes of Land, Water and Sky. Located on the banks of the San Antonio River in Brackenridge Park, the Witte Museum is San Antonio’s premier museum promoting lifelong learning through innovative exhibitions, programs and collections in natural history, science and South Texas heritage.
General Admission is $15 for adults, $14 for seniors, $10 for children (4-11). Admission to the Fiesta Exhibition is included with General Admission.
Visitors may purchase General Admission at the Witte Museum, 3801 Broadway, San Antonio, Texas 78209 or online at www.wittemuseum.org
