San Antonio's creative community brings in billions of dollars in economic impact for the city each year. 

Local museums are key cultural institutions which can provide an unforgettable experience for families and visitors year-round.

During the month of October, however, existing members of participating organizations can get free access to more than 10 other local sights and attractions, including the Institute of Texan Cultures, the San Antonio Missions and the gardens at Villa Finale

Artpace, Blue Star Contemporary, The Doseum, and the Southwest School of Art are also taking part and hosting special events for "Museum Month San Antonio."
