The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco is one of the largest museums in the Western world devoted exclusively to Asian Art. Using Asia as its lens and art as its cornerstone, the museum sparks connections across cultures and through time, igniting curiosity, conversation and creativity. Of course, Asia is not one place. The ideas and ideals that we call Asian are countless and diverse. Some of the works displayed pre-date written history. Others were recently created. Many have connections to works from other continents and other millennia. These links are explored, and discovery, debate and inspiration is prompted. Curious yet? Normally museum admission is $12 but this and every first Sunday visitors can check out the museum free of cost. Please note: special exhibits may require an additional fee.
