There’s a lot to discover at Hemisfair, like a table that teaches kite-building and beautiful, mosaic benches that tell the legend of Yanaguana. But be careful – there’s a panther waiting to pounce!

Historic Buildings

Historic Hemisfair Home

There are 22 historic properties on the Hemisfair campus. Some are brutalist concrete buildings from the 1968 World’s Fair, while many are historic homes constructed in the late 19th century. Many of the structures are currently undergoing renovation, so please pardon our dust.

Location: Yanaguana Garden

Theatre Plaza

Picnic tables made from reclaimed, local wood face a layered theatre proscenium with natural scenes cut out of its surface. This artistic stage is perfect for putting on your own shows, and even lights up at night!

Location: Between the Eager House and Magik Theatre in Yanaguana Garden
