This has a huge selection, excellently presented, and the museum itself is beautiful. Great cafe too. Definitely worth a few hours, particularly for Asian art fans.

One of the gems in Golden Gate Park, it has a fantastic collection of Asian art of all types, including armor and helmets that are impossible to describe. If you have any interest in this, don't miss it.

All around, an excellent museum. The building is an old library, but the interior is completely redone, beautifully, and impressively. My wife and I are interested in art, but Asia is not a strong point. Nevertheless, we were very impressed with our visit. We had a great tour from a docent, and watched a demo by several caligraphy artists. We learned a lot. If we lived in SF, we'd be visiting frequently.

The artifacts are beautiful representations of all Asia. You can take lessons at the Museum. The museum store is wonderful! And the cafe
is excellent. Take time to view the specimens. This museum is newer and very well designed and people friendly.
