Located in the historic Lone Star Brewery complex, SAMA includes one of the largest collections of western antiquities in the southern U.S., as well as impressive collections of Latin American Folk Art once belonging to former Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller and Robert K. Winn. The Lenora and Walter F. Brown Asian Art Wing, opened in May 2005, established SAMA as the largest center for Asian art in the southern U.S. Self-guided and docent-guided tours are available. Arrange your schedule to visit on Tuesday, also known as "Free Tuesdays" because you can take a docent-led tour between 4 and 9PM free of charge. It's worth it having someone help you navigate this mammoth collection. Closed on Mondays. Admission is $8 for adults, discounted for seniors and military, and free for members and children under three.
