This spacious museum is located on the quiet and non-commercial end of the Riverwalk. It has an impressive collection with thoughtful and knowledgeable staff.

Located in the old Lone Star Brewery building, this beautiful museum was a respite from the heat and the crowds. It has items from Ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, India, China and more. On a Saturday in early May, it was not at all crowded.

Wow! We have been to a lot of museums and this is one of the best in our opinion. Lots of different types of art, and sizable collections of each type. We needed more time there.

We were surprised at the variety of artwork in this building. There are a number of levels and on Tuesdays, after 4 PM, the museum is free to the public including parking across the street. Well worth a visit on Tuesday afternoon.
