San Francisco is a hub of Asian American culture and heritage, thanks in large part to Angel Island and its role as 'the Ellis Island of the West' during times of heavy immigration. It’s estimated that as many as one million Asian immigrants passed through this area between the period of 1910-1940.

The museum houses an impressive permanent collection, featuring unique works on display including South Asian stone sculptures, Korean paintings, Tibetan thangkas, Cambodian Buddhas, Islamic manuscripts, and Japanese ceramics. Asian Art also cycles exiting temporary exhibits, so check the museum’s calendar before your visit. They also frequently feature special dance or musical performances and tea ceremonies that you won’t want to miss.
