Witty Museum

San Antonio’s Witte Museum was an interesting diversion. Not pronounced WIT. Not pronounced WITTY. It’s WITT -E. There was a room stuffed with Texas animals. Right, the animals were stuffed, too. There was a special exhibition of San Antonio’s history. Some history nuggets:

  • Many original settlers were from the Canary Islands.
  • The population swelled during the Mexican Revolution as hundreds of thousands of refugees entered.
  • The bloodiest battle of the Texas Revolution occurred just south of San Antonio. The rebels (aka the good guys in this war) were routed.
  • The military has always had a large presence.
