Asian Art Museum Reviews
広い。とにかく広い。みるものがたくさん。季節によって催し物が変わる。中国やインドなど多くの国のものがある more »Wide. Room to swing. What I see a lot of. Events vary by season. There are many countries, such as China and India
とっても素敵な美術館でした。なんだか、珍しくアジアが恋しくなりました。ただ、シスコのこのあたりってアジア人激烈多いので、シスコ自体がある意味アジア博物館(笑) more »It was a very nice Museum. Somehow, unusually, Miss Asia. However, this part of Cisco's violent Asians means Asia Museum (lol), so Cisco itself
Caught the Divine Bodies show and it was great! I brought three teenagers and they enjoyed it. We went on a Thursday night when admission is discounted and they stay open til 9pm. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They even let us know we could save an extra couple dollars with the student discount, and get the audio tour on our cell phones for free.
Good museum, went for the "Heavenly Bodies" exhibit. Wished there was just a tad more variety... Most of the exhibits were Hinduism. Persian section was all Islam, no mention of Zoroastrianism etc. Just would have liked to see more variety/deeper education personally thus only 4 stars.
