SAN ANTONIO - The Witte Museum has broken ground on the next phase of a $100 million transformation of the nearly 90-year-old Broadway campus.

The first phase of the project, which cost roughly $20 million, included the transformation of the former Pioneer Hall into the Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation South Texas Heritage Center, and nearby office space into the Witte Research Center.

The second phase of the renovation and expansion campaign will cost roughly $60 million and add 65,000 sf to the Witte Campus.

The project, which has been branded the New Witte, will include significant changes to the museum's main building, as well as the construction of the Mays Family Center, which will house special exhibitions and events.

A third phase of improvements is also planned. That $20 million project will include the development of a new Center for Rivers and Aquifers.
