The International Art Museum of America (IAMA) is proudly situated in San Francisco’s Central Market District. We are a public-benefit, nonprofit organization.

IAMA opened in 2011 as a retrospective of the works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. While shifting focus to better reflect our mission, IAMA began to acquire artwork from other Chinese and European masters of art. Our current collection features traditional and modern Chinese ink wash and calligraphy, and European oil paintings from the 17th to 20th centuries.  

The mission of IAMA is to foster the community by providing an inclusive space to experience art and generate dialogue around diverse cultures through exhibits, programs and education.

Our goal is to ultimately feature art from around the world to reflect the international heritage of the city in which our museum resides. By expanding our collection, we will further engage visitors in our mission to promote cultural diversity and understanding through art and creativity.

We offer guided tours, art classes, and gallery sketching.

For more information please visit or call (415) 376-6344. We are open Tuesday-Sunday from 10:00am-5:00pm.
