This museum features a fantastic collection of old world and contemporary art. The art presented is along the lines of a stroll through the great eras human history. There is a fantastic collection of Latin American art and pre-columbian treasures. This should be on everyone's SA landmark list.

We followed the Museum Reach part of Riverwalk to get to the museum. There was a Jamie Wyeth exhibit going on and it was amazing. Very friendly, helpful staff. Loved our visit it.

Spend an afternoon and you're in for a visual sensation. The galleries are packed with a huge variety of art. Asian, European, American, Latin American, Contemporary, ancient art - so much. The curatorial staff continues to bring great exhibits from all over. Well worth admissions price. Can visit free on Sundays by arriving 10am-noon. Docent led tours on many weekends.... More

The 10-15 minute Riverwalk from our hotel to the Art Museum was almost as nice as the museum. Loved how San Antonio has mixed art and nature along the river! The museum was a hidden gem with all the different types of exhibit rooms. We were really impressed with the docents giving school children tours and how they were making... More

I came to see the Latin American collection where I see how the gold leaf was applied. Brushed on to the wood. This place is so spiritual it make me feel like if I was in church. I recommend this museum to everyone. You will find Pernament and temporary traveling exhibits that will evoke your level of culture. This is... More

This museum gives visitors and encyclopedic view of art history with exhibits ranging from Ancient Egypt to modern day. There is so much to see that you might need more than once visit. It's worth the cost of admission. They traveling exhibits they get tend to be pretty interesting. I once went to one that feature a glass blowing artist.... More

It's a Good chance to deep into history of many cultures,...I like a lot the idea of the building to divide presentation cultures by floor levels. It is interesting for kids and adults, but will be great if the museum present interactive or acting shows for kids to learn history and attract more the attention.
