Great place to spend time!

I have been coming to the Asian Art Museum on a regular basis since moving to San Francisco four years ago. It's definitely become one of my favorite art spaces in the city. Their regular collection is strong, and has a lot of fascinating pieces to see. The space, even though appropriated from an old building, is well lit and airy, and the collection itself is curated well, and there is a good flow to the whole building.

I am a member, (which can be split with someone, so you'd share the cost and both get in free, whenever) and I find myself coming back for the revolving exhibitions, and the regular collection.

Friday seems to be the field-trip day... so if you don't like kids and art at the same time, avoid Friday mornings.

Previously in Golden Gate Park and reopened in a stunning space that was once the Beaux Arts-style main library, San Francisco's Asian Art Museum is one of the Western world's largest museums devoted to Asian art. Its collection boasts more than 15,000 art objects, including world-class sculptures, paintings, bronzes, ceramics, and jade items, spanning 6,000 years of history and regions of...

A visit to the Asian Art Museum is like touring Asia without jet lag. Arranged by country, the permanent collection starts with India, meanders eastward and ends with Japan. The order reflects a major theme, the spread of Buddhism across the Asian world. But you don’t need to know that to enjoy seeing the art. Look for the sinuous temple carvings in the India and Southeast Asia collections, and...

I adore this place; everything time I visited, I am reminded how much I love this place. The collection is outstanding and the architecture of the museum itself is a sight of its own.

This gave a great overview of various customs and religions with the wonderful art displays. I have not seen a similar museum but we enjoyed it a great deal.
