Wonderful collection to wonder through - four floors of art and objects to view. Start with the Egyptian area and move to Roman and Greek art - excellent organization and displays!

Had a great time at my first ever Friday Night Art Party with friends. A nice way to relax and enjoy art. The appetizers where yummy and the cocktails where interesting but good! A great time for friends or dates.

I'm not an art person at all, but I really enjoyed that the museum reflected a bit of local history with their extensive Latin American collections. They're also one of (I think) four museums in the U.S. to have a permanent sand mandala exhibit, which was just breathtaking. Definitely a must-see in San Antonio. A couple tips: The museum is...

Well worth a visit. This museum has a wide selection of art with a heavy concentration in Asian and Latin American Art. The museum is well-laid out with good signage. There are brochures available for both adults and children highlighting the most popular items in the collection. This museum has frequent special exhibits that are well-curated and usually supplemented with... More

I am by no means an artsy person nor a museum person. However, we did the double decker tour and decided to get off at the museum to pass some time away on a hot day. I have to admit, I loved it.

We spent a morning at the museum due to rainy weather. I was very impressed with the various galleries. I enjoyed listening to the docents giving small children tours and how they brought the museum pieces to their understanding level. The admission price was very reasonable for the collection they have. We walked to the museum from our hotel along... More

I thought the museum was well worth the visit. Nothing against San Antonio Museum, because all museums are like this. After a while it gets to be information overload. We have a famous Dinosaur Museum here in Alberta where they have discovered lots of dinosaur bones and so that's why there is a huge exhibit. It takes all day to... More

This is a small museum, but it is well curated with a nice collection of Ancient Art as well as Asian Arts. The Covarrubias exhibit was a delight.
