Education at Play - The Perfect Field Trip
We believe the arts are integral to a well-rounded and culturally relevant education. We also believe in the invaluable gift of literacy, and it is our mission to develop a child's love and understanding of literature. Over half a million children from more than 400 schools throughout Texas have visited The Magik Theatre. Each of Magik’s productions is accompanied by comprehensive classroom guides and recommended reading lists, in our effort to ensure that every show can be easily integrated into classroom activities.
After your visit to Magik, enjoy another educational experience at The Instituto Cultural de Mexico.Take a walk through the exhibit, learn about Mexican history, and enjoy the art on display. With a standing mission to promote Mexican culture in South Texas, since 1958 the Instituto has presented art exhibits, concerts, film, theater and literature. Admission into The Instituto is FREE and will engage both children and teachers.
For a little more activity, in October 2015 construction ended and Yanaguana Garden
opened! This four-acre playscape, the first phase of a reimagined, redesigned Hemisfair, is a great area to have lunch or run off some energy before or after a show at the Magik.
The Tower of the Americas
lets you see the city of San Antonio spread at your feet, and allows your class to experience some of the wonder of Hemisfair '68.
Also one of the showpieces of Hemisfair, the Institute of Texan Cultures
unrolls the exciting multicultural history of our amazing state.
