The builing that it is in is pretty cool. My daughter enjoyed roaming around despite the fact that one of the towers is currently closed for renovations. The art and sculptures were nice, but it was like any other museum trip.

This houses a wide range of art from antiquity through to modern. It is light and airy; and the exhibits are mostly clearly explained with good background information. The only downside was that quite a lot was shut when we visited.

This museum offers a wide range of sculptures, paintings, furniture and other amazing artifacts to view. A great place to go on a rainy day, or to get out of the hot Texas sun. I go about once a year when I'm in San Antonio...More

Sorry to say it was temporary and gone. We were so fortunate to see it the last day of the exhibition.
