San Francisco's Golden Gate park is beautiful and this museum is right in the middle. Check their website for current shows and events.
One of the more diverse art museums. Check out their website to see if they have anything interesting on display.
Rebuilt after our 1989 earthquake. It was designed by Herzog and de Meuron. The adjoining tower is free to the public. It has good views.
The de Young is one of SF's best museums and offers a great array of fine art along with rotating guest exhibits.
Wonderful museum. Make sure to go to the top of the tower for an amazing view of the City.
“Excellent museum! **Be aware that “smash and grab” car thefts are common in San Francisco tourist areas. To the extent possible, never leave anything valuable in your vehicle, even if stored in a trunk.**”
“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”
“This popular art gallery bordering the Mascone center features some of the best world class art exhibits. ”
“Beautiful Greenhouse in Golden Gate Park. Lots of orchids, bromeliads and carnivorous plants to see!”
