Asian Art Museum - General Admission

The Asian Art Museum, located opposite the San Francisco Civic Center, is home to one of the world’s most diverse collections of art and objects from across the Asian continent. The museum first opened in 1966 and has since become one of the world’s greatest centers of Asian culture.

From China to the Philippines, the Asian Art Museum features an extraordinary mix of historical works, exquisite pieces and unique objects spanning 6,000 years of human history that celebrate diversity and artists from throughout Asia. Visitors can enjoy beautiful paintings, sculptures, furniture, textiles and armor, and other objects, originating from Turkey, China, India, Japan and other Asian cultures. Whether it’s gilded bronze statues of Buddha, ritual vessels in the shape of a Rhinoceros or rare ceramics from fourteenth- to sixteenth-century Vietnam, the Asian Art Museum showcases the richness, depth and variation of this culture. The galleries of the museum are lined with numerous masterworks. And there are quite a few exhibitions on display at the museum at any given time. Walk through the halls and explore the traveling exhibits on calligraphy, painting and archaeology.

Elevate your museum trip by attending one of the hands-on workshops offered by the museum. Workshops range from ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement) and bamboo weaving to calligraphy and bojagi (Korean wrapping cloths) and others. Be sure to try out some authentic Asian cuisine at Café Asia before you head out!
