The Asian Museum of Art is a museum in San Francisco that collects Asian cultural relics, especially Chinese ones. There are many cultural relics from China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries. China has a lot of porcelain, jade and bronze! In the United States, there should be the largest collection of Asian art museums! It's worth visiting!
The Asian Art Museum is a famous Museum of Culture and Art in San Francisco. It's a good place to go with friends. It's a very worthwhile place to go in the Gulf Area. It's a beautiful museum. You can take the No. 19 bus. After a long journey, I finally arrived here, where I dreamed and realized my little wish.
It's a very beautiful museum. It's not very big, but there's a lot of stuff in it.
Every month there is a free day, this weekend to see, there are many beautiful babies.
So, I know this isn't exactly the most objective review ever, but every time I go to the Asian Art Museum, I have an amazing time. I'm so sad they don't do their Art After Dark events anymore (so fun; please leave a comment here if they ever start them up again so I know!), but I've enjoyed every daytime visit here, even when it was just to meet a friend for tea in their cafe. I always come here for a visiting exhibit (art from the monks of Bhutan, etc), but even the permanent collection is fantastic. 'New' items are post-1500s AD. The rooms are divided into seven geographic zones and include western Asia -- Stans, Persia, etc. Because of this museum, I've developed a deeper appreciation for Asian art. Which is really cool.
The San Francisco Asian Art Museum was built in 1966. It has more than 15,000 art treasures from Asian countries and regions such as China, Japan, Korea and Indonesia. As a key collection, there are more than 2,000 pieces of Chinese porcelain, more than 1,200 pieces of jade and more than 800 pieces of bronze, which are the richest collections of Chinese jades in the world. It also has the largest collection of Asian art in the United States.
It's right across from City Hall. I've been to a Samurai exhibit. It also hosts various community events. For example, the opening night gala of the San Francisco International Asian-American Film Festival takes place here.
Having been here twice, I never had a chance to see everything. Beautiful pieces worth taking your time to see. A Must See during your visit to the area. Be sure to follow the museums rules about camera please!
Lots of exhibits in a building to suit. Very dramatic beaux-arts building with some modern touches and a dramatic staircase.
Unbelievable exhibition running until 27th of May 2013. If you get a chance take a look.
