The Museum Reach includes roughly three miles of pedestrian pathways, multiple water features, over 70,000 plants, and passes by landmarks that include the oldest VFW post in Texas, the San Antonio Museum of Art and Pearl, a private redevelopment of the former Pearl brewery.
San Antonio’s famous river barges are able to gain access to the Museum Reach through the Lock and Dam complex at Brooklyn Ave. This raises and lowers barges approximately nine feet to allow them to travel north to Pearl.
Throughout the year, there are many attractions that you will find on the Museum Reach, including a colony of roughly 60,000 Mexican Free-tailed bats that live under I-35 bridge from April to October, and the River of Lights display that runs throughout the month of December.
The City of San Antonio and Bexar County funded the construction of the Museum Reach, and it’s currently managed by the San Antonio River Authority. Public artwork was funded through private donations raised by the San Antonio River Foundation.
