San Antonio, TX





The San Antonio Museum of Art, serving a population of more than one million, is the only major comprehensive art museum in south Texas. The Museum is located near the heart of old San Antonio, at 200 West Jones Avenue, the Intersection of Civilizations, between Broadway and St. Mary's Street.

Housed in the historic, turn-of-the-century Lone Star Brewery, the Museum is home to the region's finest collection of Egyptian, Greek and Roman antiquities, Asian art, Latin American art, American and European paintings, and contemporary art.

In 1998, the Museum inaugurated a new wing, The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Latin American Art, the nation's only center dedicated to the exhibition and study of Latin American Art.

The San Antonio Museum of Art strives to address the broad-based cultural concerns of its audiences through a variety of educational programming, outreach offerings, and the presentation of international and cross-cultural exhibitions.

Please see the museum's website for hours and admission fees.
