We saw this exhibit today. Well worth a visit and is a large collection of his works. This is a special exhibit so it is an extra $10 fee to enter the museum and see this exhibit. Good history of his career. The other special exhibit is by Jose Arpa, who painted local scenes in San Antonio in the 1920s.... More

A typical big city Museum, this one has it's artifacts presented well, it is organized by floor and wing . Nothing to my eye was remarkable, but what was displayed was very well done. A bit disappointing that there was nothing Alamo or old Texas related on display, but perhaps they intentionally left that for the National Park. The Jamie... More

The San Antonio Museum of Art was fantastic, with wonderful permanent exhibits as well as special ones. The building is very well planned and very large. One could easily spend 2-4 hours here, eat a nice lunch. Also situated on the river, can walk from downtown or take a water taxi.

Thanks to the City of San Antonio for having the vision to convert the old Lone Star Brewing facility into an amazing Art Museum! - Very nice that they re-worked it, and connected it up to the Riverwalk Extention. You can take a water taxi from the main Riverwalk loop, for a leisurely ride north along the river and enjoy... More

The Jamie Wyeth Exhibit is wonderful! We visited on one of the "free general admission" days so we paid only for the Jamie Wyeth Exhibit which is $10.00 per person and totally worth the extra charge. It's a lovely showing with many stories about the artist and his subjects. The vast collections in the rest of the museum will make... More

I love this museum! Plenty of free parking. Beautiful, well done exhibits and such great variety for all tastes of art lovers! I highly recommend it! Although you’ll need your GPS to navigate the entrance to the freeways.

This museum is located in the former Lone Star Brewery a block from the River Walk.They have a bit of everything here - art from the Antiquities - to present. You can easily spend a couple of hours wandering through the gallery space.

Was extremely impressed by the extensive Egyptian and Greek art. Being an art teacher, especially enjoyed all aspects of the museum. The combining of two old buildings into one by updating all, and using a bridge was perfect. Better then ripping down old structures.
