  • We went on a Friday night at 6 PM because we saw it was open till nine. Glad we went at this time practically had the museum to our selves. Lots of art to see. Was not a close walk from hotel on river...  more »
  • The Museum is free on Sundays mornings, and we took the opportunity to visit it. It is really worthwhile. It is a very well organized and full place to spend few hours admiring art objects of different epochs and parts of the world. In addition to architecture and the atmosphere of the place, very typical of San Antonio, they leave a good taste in the mouth.

  • This museum was fantastic don't judge to old exterior look. The inside is very modern with beautiful pieces of art from all over the world to even include American art. The staff is super helpful and friendly. They asked all the right questions to help me with what I was looking for even suggested other art I would probably be interested in. Love it here very kid friendly also.
  • I had not been at the museum since 2011 and i can say that it has gone through many great changes. All the wonderful displays, statues and artwork make this place a must visit for everyone. I took lots of pics, but people should really take time to visit and experience everything personally. It will amaze you!
  • A true rarity of a museum. The art works were all impeccable, and the selection was astounding. The staff was kind and very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions. This museum is laid out very nicely, and would make a great date night stop.
  • It was so fun and interesting. I got to see areas I've never seen before and the staff were so kind and helpful. The current special exhibit (The Latino List) was fantastic. They usually are. It is always worth it.
  • There's a lot to view. I'm sure you can view this museum in one day, if you start early, but 2 days off thou stay later in the day! Friendly place and wonderful staff. Great selections of works of art. Stay on the lookout for their free days.
