Asian Art Museum

Given that San Francisco has frequently had one eye on the Pacific, and that generations of immigrants from Asia have shaped the city's history, it is perhaps not surprising that one of the world's premier institutions devoted to Asian art can be found here. The Asian Art Museum was long located in a wing of the de Young Museum, but having outgrown that space it moved into the city's former main library in 2003. Even in its new home, there isn't sufficient square footage to show more than a fraction of the permanent collection at any one time. If you have visited before, the regularly rotating displays mean that you're likely to see different pieces on your next trip. Temporary and traveling exhibitions cover Asian art from the classic to the contemporary.
