The Spanish Governor’s Palace, a National Historic Landmark, is the last visible trace of the Presidio San Antonio de Bexar and the only remaining example in Texas of an aristocratic 18th-century Spanish Colonial town house. Constructed in 1749, it was used as the headquarters and residence of the captain of the San Antonio De Bexar Presidio and given the name the "Spanish Governor's Palace.” The building is a long one-story, U-shaped stone structure covered in stucco that surrounds a traditional Spanish patio and courtyard. Since 1931, it has operated as a Museum of Spanish Colonial History.
The Spanish Governor's Palace is located at 105 Plaza de Armas in San Antonio, Texas 78205. It is open Tuesday-Saturday from 9:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The fees are $5 adult regular admission, $3 for seniors and military, and $3 for children ages 7 through 13. Children under the age of seven are free. For admission or rental information, call (210) 224-0601.

The Majestic Theatre and Charline McCombs Theatre are San Antonio’s premier performing arts facilities featuring Broadway shows, concerts, comedians and other live events.
The Historic Majestic Theatre is located at 224 E. Houston Street in the heart of downtown San Antonio, Texas. Built in 1929 by John Eberson for Interstate Theatres, the Majestic was intended to be the most modern building in South Texas and was the first in the state to be totally air-conditioned. The Majestic remains one of the finest examples of atmospheric theatres ever built, receiving National Historic Landmark status in 1993. Purchased in 1988 by the City of San Antonio, the theatre was renovated in 1989 at a cost of $15 million, and shortly after, in 1996, the stage was expanded, allowing the theatre to accommodate major Broadway musicals. Since 1989, the Majestic has hosted over 5 million patrons, all at no cost to taxpayers. Address: 224 E. Houston St, San Antonio, Texas 78205
The Charline McCombs Empire Theatre was built in 1913 on the site of the former Rische's Opera House in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Designed in the style of a European palazzo by architects Mauran, Russell & Crow of St. Louis, the Empire operated as a vaudeville house and then a motion picture theatre. The Empire's grandeur was prematurely concealed by inappropriate repairs to extensive flood damage in 1921. After a long, slow decline, the vaudeville house, turned B-run movie theatre, closed its doors in 1978. Address: 226 N. St. Mary’s Street, San Antonio, Texas 78205
