"It's not just a museum where you look at things and don't touch," explained Julie Galbraith, Board President with Texas State Museum of Asian Cultures. "We'll have items that the kids can experience and touch. We'll have musical instruments they can play. Things they can color that represent the different cultures. games. Cultural clothing that they can dress up in."

The museum is located right across from American Bank Center on North Chaparral Street.
