McKennaChildrensMuseum1When bringing your family to visit San Antonio, consider the area’s children’s museums. Yes, there is more than one and if you are in the northeast area, the McKenna Children’s Museum in New Braunfels is a great and affordable way to spend the day.
The McKenna Children’s Museum is easily accessed off I-35 and the whole museum is contained on one floor. It’s probably the smallest and lowest-tech children’s museum I’ve visited but my children ranging in age from 3 to 7 had a great time.


They tried on space suits and went “shopping”, but perhaps enjoyed most the water play outside. The Tasty Tuesday make-your-own-snack was also a hit and the art room was as well with the older kids. The three year old loved the big train set and all the kids loved the floor games (the kind where you jump on the light or whatever the goal is).

If you’re in the New Braunfels area, the McKenna Children’s Museum is worth a visit. While the size and variety might be small, the price is also low compared to others I have visited – regular admission is just $7.50 during the summer and only $5.50 the rest of the year. We used a Groupon to get an even bigger discount.
