How to Get Into the Institute of Texan Cultures for Free
Well, it's not completely free but a trade that is well worth the effort. The Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC) is a library and museum under the administrative supervision of the University of Texas-San Antonio.
I like to think of the ITC as sort of a Smithsonian of Texas history. There are exhibits, manuscripts, photos covering the history and people who have lived in what is now the great state Texas. If you like history and learning about how things were way back when, you owe it to yourself to visit the ITC.
The ITC has information from the period when Spain and later Mexico claimed what is now Texas territory. Americans, native Americans, Texians, African Americans, and European immigrants have all played important roles in the settling and development of what is now one of the greatest States in the nation.
Now about getting into the ITC for free. On December 13, 2014, the San Antonio Food Bank is sponsoring an event at the ITC. If you bring a donation of any item on the SA Foodbank's Twelve Most Wanted Foods you will be admitted free admission. This is between 10AM and 3PM only. So do a good deed, and get exposed to some Texas culture.
That's how to Get into the Institute of Texan Cultures for free.
