About the Museum

San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum is home to one of the most complete collections of Asian art in the world. Constructed in 1916 as the city’s main public library, the beautiful beaux arts building was reimagined in 2003 by Gae Aulenti, the visionary behind the Musée d’Orsay.

The museum’s diverse and adaptable spaces provide the perfect setting for meetings and celebrations. Whether you plan to welcome a few dozen guests or more than a thousand, the museum has several options to choose from.

From the historic grandeur of Samsung Hall to the new 7,000 square foot East West Bank Art Terrace debuting in late summer 2023, we’ll help you find the space that best suits your event, your guests, and your style.

Our historic location in the heart of San Francisco is close to everything that matters: Moscone Convention Center, Union Square hotels, parking, and public transit. And our catering options showcase our city’s celebrated foodie culture.

In turn, you’ll be contributing to a cultural legacy. Event fees support the museum’s ongoing efforts to preserve and display more than 18,000 works of art, present public educational programs, produce a legacy of significant print publications, and maintain our landmark building in San Francisco’s historic Civic Center.
