  • On the first Sunday of the month, tickets are free for San Francisco residents. a lot of sections of different Asian countries are very informative and interesting, most of the exhibits are from China. The mother-in-law museum looks big, but inside there are few halls where you can enjoy history. we went through all the halls with exhibits in 1.5 hours. they also put up a table with souvenirs at $ 1 dollar at the store, we bought 10 openly for $ 1
  • I generally love museums. This one is a collection of very old-- and some recent-- beautiful cultural objects and art that hold symbolic meaning for the peoples it originally belonged to. I loved the golden Buddhist sculptures. Definitely worth a very long visit!
