With over 18,000 magnificent artworks, the Asian Art Museum has one of the world’s finest collections of Asian art, including masterpieces unlike anything else. The oldest dated Buddha sculpture in the world and a rare 3,000-year-old bronze rhinoceros are just two of the many treasures that await you.
Located conveniently in San Francisco's Civic Center and surrounded by some of the city's most remarkable architecture, the Asian Art Museum is a living monument to the city’s history. Built in 1917, its stately beaux-arts building was originally the Main Library, re-imagined as a modern museum while retaining its original character.
