Comments about Smart Destinations Asian Art Museum:
Great museum. The location is convenient too. I enjoyed the famous Farmer's Market just down the street with fresh produce and handmade crafts. The Museum is large and interesting - the best museum I saw in San Fran. Lots of ceramics. I especially enjoyed lunch in the restaurant. The dim sum and grapefruit tea were authentic and divine.
