I was surprised and impressed by the breadth and depth of the collection. They have a huge amount of East Asian art, as well as a significant number of pieces from Latin America and the USA. They even have a display from Oceania.

Ate lunch at the restuarant and spent a Sunday afternoon inside. Never made it out of the Asian collection. Well worth a visit.

While the European painting are nothing special, the collection of Latio, Native American, and Polynesian art is remarkable. Free on Tuesdays after 4PM, SAMA is well worth the visit

Great museum, even better admission ! Many Greek & Egyptian pieces in their collection. Interesting linear rooms, stacked vertically with a skywalk. Small museum store - wish it was larger. Cafe selections looked good but we did not eat there

I do a fair amount of museums and have discovered some gems in small cities, this, despite a very user friendly layout, was not one of them. Lots of ancient history vs. 'art', and maybe that's my problem: pre-Columbian and other focus on native cultures...More

So much history is packed into this off-the-beaten-path museum. You will not be disappointed if you spend a few hours here. Hats off the curators --- every display was beautifully arranged. We consider our visit to this Museum a highlight of our trip to San...More

Sorry to say it was temporary and gone. We were so fortunate to see it the last day of the exhibition.
