Notice About New Witte Entrance While Construction Occurs

I wanted to relay some construction information that has been (or will be) taking place on campus before your September meeting will be approaching I wanted to share some construction news with you. On September 2nd the museum will be closing our main entrance and front parking lot that faces Broadway to begin construction on our new expanded entrance and exhibit spaces. This means your group will now enter the campus through the new Riverside Gate which will sub as our entrance until the new main entrance is completed. The gate is located on Tuleta Street and its right across from the Brackenridge Parking garage. We will have signage and a greeter at this gate as we are excited to start this next phase of The New Witte. Please let me know if you need more information or want to stop by to see how the new entrance will work. I will love to help!

At this time we have SAWS construction taking place on the corner of Tuleta Street and Avenue B that blocks one entry point to the Brackenridge Parking Garage. I will be forwarding you a map that gives your guests instructions as to how to access the garage from Funston Street and Avenue B. Please share this map with your club members. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me in the office.

Our general meetings are on the third Tuesday of each month at the Witte Museum, 3801 Broadway near Brackenridge Park (map below). They are free and open to everyone. Free parking is available in front of the museum or in the parking garage south of the museum across Tuleta Drive (map at bottom).
Socializing and snacks begin at 6:00 p.m., program at 6:30 p.m.. Presentations last about an hour.

Throwaway batteries

Bring Your Used Batteries to the Meeting

Don’t throw those small batteries in the trash bin where they will end up in our landfills. Bring them to the monthly general meetings where we will have a container for you to place them in. Thanks to Gay Wright for coordinating this recycling effort.
