If Asian art is an interest for you, the grandiosely named Pacific Heritage Museum may have something modest to offer. Its several hushed rooms mount displays of artworks by Asian-descended artists, both living and dead, but for me, the most interesting aspect of the place is the basement exhibit, which uncovers the structure of the Subtreasury Building that stood in this spot from 1875 and was destroyed after the [‘]06 quake. Of course, the palatial Asian Art Museum is the most elaborate repository in town for this sort of work, and shouldn’t be missed.
