Heard this museum was amazing and the comments were right. Great way to spend a half day learning about the history of Asia. Comfortable environment and spacious enough that it didn't feel crowded.

The "new" Asian Art Museum is gorgeous with an extensive collection of art from all of Asia. I grew up visiting their Golden Gate Park museum, which, though a fine collection, was pretty small. The "new" museum also more special exhibits that are well-executed, as well. I particualrly loved the Chinese collection and the modern art that is included with ancient, traditional arts. The parking is easy, due to a garge close by and there are many other things to do in the neighborhood, as well. One of my favorite SF museums. I'd rank it up there with the DeYoung.

At our last visit, we saw the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit---excellent---well planned & well labelled. The whole museum is amazing & HUGH....plan on several visits, each of several hours. Go slow --allow time to sit & "absorb the ambience". I definately wish I lived in SF so I could visit this museum frequently; it is loaded with wonderful "stuff". The staff were helpful, pleasant, informed. Re: the fee question---there was a fee for this special exhibit, but not for the whole museum. It was a small fee in real terms & very small for the value we got! Handicap access is excellent.
