  • EXQUISITE !!! Definitely top notch and world class collections in the heart of SF and easily accessible by public transportation or by walking if you’re staying in the city. Excellent building and exhibit layout and its not overwhelming. Prepare to spend about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to really appreciate what it offers. Check out the cafe - it’s a must!!! Museum cafes are known to be grab and go, but this one is different and the other reviews are correct. The museum store looks like a high end boutique and is definitely worth checking out. This is one of the museums you will really enjoy. Update: They have a separate entry special exhibit, “Team Lab Continuity.”
  • We attended the absolutely beautiful and mysterious "teamLab: continuity" and it was unforgettable. So easy at first sight, all these colors and music make this experience a true magic. I appreciate the Asian Art Museum team for helping me reschedule the visit and being so nice and patient. I would definitely give the 5 stars if the guard that made us leave the room at 4.57 was a little bit more polite. It's sad that sometimes a rude staff member can change the impression.
