Everything was fine until we saw the coffee table of the couple doing a sexual act. That was all that really stood out to me, so if you have kids and would rather not see that ..avoid the contemporary art floor. It was a lovely time to pass the time on a rainy day.

San Antonio Museum of Art is the very place to learn and see how our ancient, and not so ancient ancestors lived and worked. The museum is a short bus ride from the Riverwalk, and well worth the visit. It is a beautiful and peaceful escape from the heat, rain, the crowds.

The museum is huge so plan accordingly. Lots of really old artifacts with great Roman and Greek art. Reminded me a lot of the Boston Museum of Art. They have free admission on Tuesdays from 4-9PM, Sunday's 10AM - 12PM . Lot of walking but worth it. Ten bucks is cheap but I did the free day since I was... More

A must see if you like art. Good for the whole family. Exhibits from all over the world. We especially liked the Greek, Roman, Chinese, and Japanese art areas.

I didn't give this a full 5 stars because the entire european and special exhibits were closed but it was because of reconstruction to make the museum better. I found the Egyptian, Greek, and Roman exhibits to be the most interesting. If you like history and art this would be the place for you. The museum is huge! I was... More

We visited the museum on an overnight trip to San Antonio. It is undergoing renovations so some parts were closed, but I would not advise trying to see the entire museum in one day regardless. The Rockefeller family made a large donation of their family collection to the museum and if you look around you will find a brochure that... More

From the outside you would never know what a gem this museum is. We were very impressed with the great number of pieces. The Museum was blessed by very generous gifts. The Japanese and Chinese wings were particularly fantastic. Also the Greek and Roman art. It was difficult getting around because of the various elevators that you had to take... More

I love this museum. It is worth so much more than the entry fee. The Rodin sculptures were awesome. Don't miss this jewel in San Antonio. Be sure to eat in the cafe also! It's right on the Riverwalk with a very peaceful, lovely view.
