This is a case of poor leadership not taking a hold of providing quality art of around the area and nation. It's prestation was weak and for the first time art visitor did not assist helping them appreciate the art.

It is not called Museo Alameda anymore. This survey is out of date as the building has been repurposed and is now managed by Texas A&M University.

Housed in a bright pink and maragarita lime building, this unique museum is located right at the entrance to El Mercado (the Mexican Market Square). It is bold and arresting (but surprisingly overlooked by most visitors to San Antonio). It is the largest museum dedicated...More
