The San Antonio Botanical Garden is on everyone's bucket list. Whether you live in the city or are just visiting for a short time, it's a place you need to experience at least once. For those who haven't been yet, there's now more of a reason to go than ever due to their newest, somewhat creepy exhibit. At this San Antonio garden, a recent art exhibit has larger-than-life bug sculptures that are spread throughout the 38 acres and they resemble very big bugs.
David Rogers’ Big Bugs exhibition was put on display at the San Antonio Botanical Garden starting on Saturday, August 31 and will be out for visitors to see until Sunday, December 8. There are a total of 10 larger-than-life insect sculptures consisting of ants, spiders, ladybugs, and so much more. What's even better is that each sculpture is made from natural materials so that it's completely eco-friendly. We stan an environmentally friendly artist!
Admission into the park is just $12 for adults, and the price hasn't changed at all to see the exhibit. Tickets are as low as $3 depending on if you qualify for the discounts, and chances are you do! We highly recommend checking out their official website before you go.
The garden is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located in downtown San Antonio, not far from many other popular locations in SA. They don't charge extra for parking and there's plenty to choose from, which makes visiting them that much easier and better. While you're there, be sure to grab a popsicle or two from their stands, it's still pretty hot after all!
The San Antonio Botanical Garden is constantly hosting fun events. Keep your eyes out for stuff going on in the next few months, and we will too, because you may be able to do a "kill two birds with one stone" kind of thing. We can't wait to see even more cute pictures of these fantastically large bugs on Insta.
