The Briscoe Western Art Museum

Mokara Hotel and Spa Briscoe Western Art Museum

Life in the American West

While the history of Mokara is connected with the city of San Antonio, the Briscoe Art Museum really gives you the chance to experience the life of the West, including Texas. There are nine galleries on three levels throughout the museum which depict life in the west, from the Spanish conquests to present day. If you are just traveling to San Antonio for a quick business trip and have nothing planned for your evenings, the Briscoe hosts events for your participation and entertainment, such as Nights of Artists Public Exhibition Sales, Gallery Talks with different featured artists and subjects and book clubs. Local city events such as a parade party during the weeks of Fiesta is a tradition that goes way back! You really will not want to miss out on any of these events whether with your family, coworkers or even solo. Just like Mokara has an authentic feel, the Briscoe will also give you that authentic sense of what life was back then in the West. Seeing this museum while you are staying at Mokara will truly be a delight for you and your family!
