It’s a place to explore new mediums, color combinations, and artistic endeavors in equal measure.

Beyond the Exhibits

A trip to the Art Museum of South Texas is a chance for visitors to enjoy a unique, interactive experience as well. Beyond the traditional exhibit halls and displays, the museum also hosts an artcade interactive space on the first floor where families can have hands-on fun with activities including painting, drawing, animation, and more. The museum also houses a digital studio within this creation station which offers a touchscreen experience complete with photo scanners and printers. After visitors have had a chance to enjoy browsing the museum and making the most of interactive fun, they can head over to the gift shop and pick up a souvenir to commemorate their visit. The gift shop is stocked with everything from books and jewelry to posters and trinkets for little ones as well. If all of the museum fun has left you with an appetite to attend to, making time for a stop at Elizabeth’s is a must.
