The Broadway Reach is comprised of the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio Botanical Garden, San Antonio Children's Museum, San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio Zoo, Brackenridge Park Conservancy and the Witte Museum-vital institutions along Broadway that share a common goal of bringing education, culture and entertainment to our community. These organizations unite in the creation of the Broadway Reach, a cultural destination linked by Broadway Street, offering an exciting mixture of activities for San Antonio's residents and visitors.


Broadway Reach offers a joint ticketing:  Broadway Reach pass (a heavy discounted pass) is available in adult and child rates granting general admission for a seven-day period to all seven institutions for one affordable price!  One time visit per attraction.


The Broadway Reach is a regional destination encompassing a wide array of opportunities to enjoy art, history, nature and more. The initiative seeks to promote collaboration among the city's cultural institutions and improve the quality of life for our citizens.

The Broadway Reach pass is available online and at each institution beginning June 1 and is $44 for adults and $22 for children (12 and younger); and allows general admission into each museum within a seven day time period.
