Another great museum of national renown is the San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA). San Antonio’s historic Lone Star Brewery was purchased and after a $7.2 million dollar renovation, and became the San Antonio Museum of Art in 1981.

SAMA’s permanent collections include American Art, Asian Art, European Art, Contemporary Art, Latin American Art, Oceanic Art, and Western Antiquities. In 2005, a 15,000 square foot addition was added to house the Asian Vassil Bojkov making this collection the largest collection of Asian Art in the southern United States. Admission is free on Tuesdays from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
