Note: The San Jacinto Museum and Battlefield Association and San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site are excited to announce the San Jacinto Family Day program. Every first Saturday of the month, we are offering a hands-on, interactive program from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. designed to be enjoyed as a family. Additionally, child entry is FREE all day with the purchase of an adult ticket, so bring the kids or grandkids and experience Texas history as a family! While groups are welcome to participate in the Family Day activity, free child admission only applies to families. This program is outside, so dress for the weather. In case of inclement weather, we will offer a substitute program inside the San Jacinto Museum. Learn more about upcoming Family Day programs here.
