With free admission on Sunday mornings, there's no reason not to stop by this wonderful museum of you happen to be visiting San Antonio around then. Even the small admission fee on other days would be worth the visit.

The museum was enjoyable to visit. The size was easily manageable in a couple of hours. Parking is free with your museum entry fee.

Went specifically to see a Picasso Tapestry exhibit that was OK...live strings in the lobby made for a pleasant afternoon. A full arsenal of antiquities with quite a lot of ancient marble statuary. The fine art side was enjoyable but not impressed with the modern art collection at all...would I go again? Absolutely!!

My husband and I had hoped to spend most of our time outside while visiting San Antonio, but it was way too cold. So we decided to look for indoor things to do and discovered this museum. We spent almost 2 hours here and still didn't see everything. The range of artwork is pretty impressive. If I were in the... More

I'll admit I went into the San Antonio Museum of Art with virtually no expectations. I just didn't know much about it. I was blown away by the quality of this gem. The museum has some impressive pieces, and the layout is designed so you can easily find whatever types of art might interest you. The building itself is a... More

Nothing to dislike. There are exhibits of Roman and Greco art plus the Nelson Rockefeller donation of his Latin American collection. Some local artists and revolved exhibits traveling the U.S. They have a great ART 101, which is monthy, with lectures and cocktails.

SAMA, as the locals know it, is one of the best museums in S. Texas and possibly the best in the city. When you are near the river walk, this is a must see if you are an art lover. While they constantly have fundraisers and special events, their true strength is doing a really great job at acquiring exhibits... More

The exhibit on western art is great! The most beautiful piece I saw though was the 11foot tall Virgin de Guadalupe.
