Mays Family Center to Bolster Witte’s Programming, Revenue

The Witte Museum is finalizing construction on The Mays Family Center, the city’s newest event and education venue outside the downtown area, which will serve as a bold connection between the San Antonio River and the growing Broadway corridor. 

The $15 million center, part of the Witte’s $100 million renovation and development project, will open on April 12 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
