Although it may not be as large as other art museums, the San Antonio Museum of Art is a cultural gem that's not to be missed. It hosts top-notch collections of Native American, Spanish colonial and Latin American art, but it's also home to the largest collection of Asian art in Texas, not to mention a respectable grouping of more contemporary pieces. Visitors are consistently impressed by the rotating exhibits that feature work by renowned artists, such as Matisse. The museum also holds a variety of special events every year ranging from film series to children's programs.
Sitting on the northern edge of downtown San Antonio, the San Antonio Museum of Art is open Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Adult admission costs $10, student admission costs $5 and children 12 and younger get in for free. There's a large parking lot on-site where you can park for free; you can also choose to take bus No. 7, which stops across the street from the museum. For more information, check out the museum's website.
