The M.H. De Young Museum – has its origins in the 1894 Midwinter International expo. The Fine arts Museum, temporarily built for the expo, was so successful that it was decided to establish a permanent museum. The museum has a very diverse collection, including paintings from the Laurance Rockefeller collection.

The De Young has a pretty diverse and eclectic collection - lots of indigenous art from Oceania, Central America and North America, as well as some contemporary American art. They have some great exhibits here, but I liked the permanent collection better at the SFMoma - where they had more well known artists represented. If you have an ATM card from Bank of America you can get in free.

Dede's toy. You'd think with all the $$$ she's given the deYoung and all the fundraisers they hold that admission would be minimal. I had no particular affinity for the previous building but the current one's exterior looks more like a warehouse with a guard tower than a home for priceless art. If you browse an exhibit, keep an eye on the overzealous security personnel.

One of the best places to see main stream art. They have a general admission $12 rate. This does not get you in the the featured exhibits which can be amazing. I would highly recommend it the space is amazing. I always leave feeling inspired.

In the verdant heart of Golden Gate Park, this art museum is an inspiring stop, whether you're looking for contemporary art from around the world or visiting just to see a special ground-breaking exhibition. Make sure you go up to the rooftop of the museum to see the botanical 'living roof' too. If you're hungry, the museum cafe ain't half bad.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

Housed in a gorgeous modern building (though some critics feel it looks like the superstructure of an aircraft carrier) in Golden Gate Park, it's a perfect stopoff during a ramble through the park. Collections of particular note are from Africa and Oceania, though their modern painting and Meso-American art collections have some strong pieces as well.

This fine arts museum has a fantastic location set in Golden Gate Park. It showcases American art from the 17th to the 21st centuries, international contemporary art, textiles, and costumes, and art from the Americas, the Pacific and Africa. When we went, the special exhibition was of Gilbert and George, a British contemporary art duo.
If you aren't particularly interested in art, the view from the top floor is amazing and you have the rest of the park to enjoy.
