“Great music venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

It's a nice little cultural gem in San Angelo. They have travelling exhibits and concerts as well. The building design fits in with the local culture.

“Unique building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Such a pretty building, surrounded by nice grounds. A little gem here in San Angelo. Very nice exhibits inside: paintings, sculpture, etc. Building looks big but exhibit area seems kind of small. It did not take us long to look--but that's a good thing when you have a 4-yr old with you. I go there 3-4 times per year.

“Enjoyed it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

I've got to hand it to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. I've been there quite a number of times throughout the years and they're one of the best at rotating pieces and switching up inventory. Nothing is more discouraging to repeat museum goes and art lovers than seeing the same old, same old.

While the number of pieces is somewhat limited considering the amount of space they have to work with (which is why they don't get 5 stars from me), the direction that the museum seems to be pointed in is ideal. I'm very pleased with the exhibits that come through SAMFA, because a lot of the time they're very unexpected.

Truly a diamond in the rough and a cultural beacon in this one horse town.

I just visited the museums in Paris and I must say, San Angelo has got a 5 star Museum!
