Life Size Sugar Skulls And Alebrijes Are In San Antonio's Witte Museum

Day of the Dead will be here before we know it, and San Antonio is one city that takes the holiday extremely seriously. So much so that the San Antonio Witte Museum recently unveiled their Day of the Dead inspired Mythical Alebrijes Exhibition to the public, with larger than life-sized sugar skulls and alebrijes. You may have been to this beloved museum once or twice before, but never like this.  

Just a few days ago the Witte Museum hosted a grand opening celebration for their Mythical Alebrijes Exhibition, which pays tribute to the Mexican holiday, Dia De Los Muertos. Taking place this year from Thursday, October 31 to Saturday, November 2, Day of the Dead is being celebrated across Texas in many, many ways. From parades to museum exhibitions like the one now at the Witte, you can't escape it and we don't want to.

From now until Thursday, November 14 you can stop by the Witte and pose with gorgeous works of art that were inspired by the incredible Pedro Linares. The beauty and obvious appreciation for Day of the Dead is evident and definitely worth the visit.

The Witte Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every other day. Admission prices vary depending on what discounts you qualify for or if you're a member, and typically allows you to see any exhibition you want.

Hopefully, you find yourself in the area on or before November 14 to experience the Mythical Alebrijes Exhibition. The Witte Museum has tons of things to do and see for all ages, and this exhibition is just the cherry on top.

Fortunately, that's well on many of our favorite zoo's radars and as a result, they've managed to figure out a way to make the adults happy too. The San Antonio Zoo's adults-only night will be hosted once again this spring and we can hardly wait for it to be here.
