Sunday, December 3 Crafts 10 AM – 2 PM Cowboy Santa 11 AM – 2 PM
Unwrap Western fun and meet Cowboy Santa at the Briscoe Western Art Museum’s annual Cowboy Christmas! This year’s Cowboy Christmas falls on the museum’s monthly “Locals Day” when the Briscoe greets locals with free general admission. Cowboy Christmas is also FREE, making the Briscoe the perfect way to enjoy holiday fun and make memories with your family.
Cowboy Christmas features a day of family fun exploring the museum with holiday crafts and visits with Cowboy Santa! Families are welcome to snap pictures with Cowboy Santa, while a special 12 Days of Christmas scavenger hunt will lead you through the Briscoe’s fantastic collection. Christmas crafts will give everyone a bit of the West to take home. And of course, a stroll through the museum’s McNutt Sculpture Garden is the perfect path to enjoy the River Walk and all of its holiday beauty.
Howdy Neighbors! Ways to Head West and Save
To show how friendly the West is and to thank the San Antonio community for its continued support, the Briscoe Western Art Museum makes the first Sunday of each month “Locals Day”, greeting locals with FREE general admission. Bexar County residents can enjoy Cowboy Christmas and Locals Day by registering online.
Not a local? The Cowboy Christmas fun is included with general museum admission. As always, children 12 and under receive FREE admission at the Briscoe, as do active duty members of the military, making the museum a terrific spot for families to add to their holiday plans. Active duty military families receive half-price admission when accompanied by their active duty family member. Year-round, retired and former members of the military also received discounted admission.
The first weekend of each month is also Bank of America Museums on Us, allowing Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and U.S. Trust cardholders to gain one FREE admission to the museum. Through Museums for All, recipients of SNAP, WIC, and MAP receive FREE general admission to the museum through Museums for All.

FREERecipients of SNAP, WIC, and MAP receive free admission through Museums for All, a cooperative which encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums. Simply present an EBT card and a photo ID.
