Celebrate the city's tricentennial with our exhibition San Antonio 1718: Art from Viceregal Mexico, only on view through May 13!
amazing! Plan to stay a few hours though to get the full enjoyment. Fruit for the soul this place...th e San Antonio art museum was a definite highlight to my trip to Texas. Thank you to all... the people who donate and loan art for our enjoyment and enrichment . I throughly enjoyed viewing most of the world through the eyes of some very talented people.
We visited the 1718 - 300 year Viceregal Art Exhibition
yesterday (March 14, 2018). Since San Antonio is celebratin g its Tricentenn ial Anniversar y, this is the perfect event, it complement s the festiv...ities beautifull y; don’t miss it.! We loved it, superbly curated, covering important viceroys, religious people, aristocrat s, military leaders, governors, etc. Too bad they don’t have a single painting and/ or reference to the man who founded San Antonio, Fray Antonio de Olivares, from Moguer, Spain. The whole city has forgotten the fact that he established the Mission of San Antonio de Valero, better known as The Álamo. Excellent museum. Thank you!!!
I was pleasantly
surprised by the variety of collection s here. There aren’t any Renoir or Picasso or Davinci, but... nice collection of asian art, including a rare saved Tibetan sand painting called ...a mandala. I also enjoyed the Japanese “nio” which are guardians of the shrines. “Ahh” and “uhnnn”. Highly recommende d. The actual building is also fascinatin g.
I have been to museums all around the world including a few of the very finest. The San Antonio Museum of Art has a very good collection
, including Egyptian, Greek, and Roman, as well as art from bot...h North and South America. We spent 3 hours at the museum and enjoyed the offerings very much. When in San Antonio, this museum is a great place to spend a few hours.
San Antonio Museum of Art has a lot to offer. I believe it has the largest collection
of Asian art in the southweste rn United States. SAMA has collection s from all around the world spanning millennia.... There's a nice ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman wing, modern American, colonial, southweste rn art, European art, Oceanic art.... There's a huge variety, and although I've been to this museum many times, I always discover something new when I visit. Love this place!

The museum is under renovation
, but it didn't hinder the experience . I found the museum to be very handicap accessible , lots of resting areas (benches), elevators, restrooms and drinking fountains on ...every floor. The staff was polite and helpful. Parking was extremely accessible as well, located just outside the entrance across the street. There is a Via bus stop right outside the door for those who favor public transporta tion. My only complaint is the red brick sidewalk leading up to the entrance. The bricks are old and many are uneven, so watch your step and try not to trip on a brick that may be sticking up.
I joined as a member of the San Antonio Museum of Art at the Art Party Blues and Blues the Band was incredible
and the exhibits were Great looking forward to going to every event this and every year!
It was a nice, educationa
l experience , but being harassed every few moments over a diaper bag was far too much. We just wanted to enjoy the experience , had we known it was going to be that big an ...issue we would have just left it in our car.

I’ve been to the Cincinnati
Art Museum, Denver Art Museum, Belz Museum of Judaica and Asian Art (Memphis, TN), Gilcrease Museum (Tulsa, OK) New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) and the Nelson-Atk ins Museu...m and the Bullock Texas State Museum (Austin) this is one of the more down to earth and approachab le art museums in the country.
Was a great experience
. Didnt have the right shoes on only got to see little over half of the place. It was mesmerizin g. Can't wait to come back and do the whole place! It's full of rooms! Hours of fun!

On Friday nights, starting at 6 p.m. exhibition surcharge is waived, and you can enjoy a cash bar and special events. Don’t miss this rare chance to see Buddhist art in Texas. The works of art are on loan from many major museums (such as the Met or the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco) and private collectors. You may find yourself connected to certain artworks, as they communicate values and ideals that still resonate today. #StARTYourWeekendAtTheMuseum #ThinkBuddha
