Both contemporary and ancient offerings, this is one of the best locations to enjoy a rainy afternoon.

The museum is beautiful and conveniently located right along the riverwalk. Only $5 for students which was a steal!

Not only is this a gorgeous museum that is wonderfully laid out, but it also houses an extensive collection of very rare Liao dynasty Chinese artworks. There's also a really nice cafe to refuel at after you've visited (you'll need to refuel because its a big place!)

SAMA is one of my favorite places in all of San Antonio. There are always great traveling exhibits and permanent pieces. The gift shop also offers tons of quirky little souvenirs and postcards. Once you finish looking through all the works of art, you can go take a stroll on The Riverwalk and see the "F.I.S.H." installation by Donald Lipski under the highway.

This past Sunday morning, my date and I went there since we learned it's free on either Sundays from 10am-12pm or Tuesday nights. We even had a blast looking at paintings, statues, and furniture from different culture frames. We even got to see the Aphrodite exhibit. Before we left, we even bought some souvenirs from the gift shop. In particular, we each got ourselves a smiling Chinese Buddha statuette for just $4.50 in case we each ever need good luck. By far, we had a blast!
