“A Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

The San Antonio Museum of Art is a little out of the way but absolutely worth a visit.
The Latin collection especially from Pre-Columbian figures to contemporary abstract paintings was superb. Shouldn't be missed.

Visited January 2011

I was very impressed with this art museum. There is much to see so be prepared and set aside a couple hours. Don't skip the little gift shop!

SAMA has a much more interesting and varied collection than what we had expected. Receiving a discounted 'educators' made this a great value, too.

“Excellent Art Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2008

This museum was quite a surprise. It is a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. I was extremely impressed with the collections inside. The ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman artifacts were surprising considering this museum is in San Antonio! They also had amazing Asian artifacts. This was one of the most memorable places I visited in San Antonio.
