UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures is a museum showcasing the diverse culturesthat built Texas. Visitors learn the stories of immigrants who settled in Texas and contributed to its modern, multicultural society. At its core, the Institute of Texan Cultures is a lesson in diversity and it shows the uniqueness and beauty of the many cultures that came to Texas through their music and dance, food, stories and traditions, religion, artisan skills, and ways of life.
The museum includes exhibits on more than 25 cultures, such as the Polish, Lebanese, Irish, Chinese, and Greek, as well as traveling and temporary exhibits focusing on specific aspects of Texan Culture. Inside, a Dome Theater surrounds guests with a 26-screen media spectacle of Texas heritage, including the stories of immigration, exploration, innovation and how diverse cultures came together to build Texas.
Directly adjacent to the Hemisfair district, the museum is in walking distance from attractions such as the Tower of the Americas, Yanaguana Park, the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Southtown arts district and King William Historic District.
