first class museum with amazing view of the area from the tower

This museum is well worth a visit: terrific art in lovely building in Golden gate Park. I travelled to the museum by bike from the marina and it was a good destination.

This has an encyclopedia of art from all over the world. I have never been to a museum that has as much variety of Worldwide Native Art. For example in Portland Art Museum they have tons of Inuit/ Native Alaskan/Native Northern Canadian artwork. This has a beautiful smorgasbord of New Guinea, Congo, Mayan, and countless others represented. There is also... More

The de Young is located in Golden Gate Park. The museum fits perfectly in this lush environment. The tower offers beautiful views of the surrounding areas. We only viewed the American Art sections. We toured with doscent Kay. She was excellent. The American artists are well represented thanks to several generous donors including John D. Rockefeller.

The deYoung Museum always has fascinating temporary shows as well as a wonderful permanent collection. The current Frank Stella exhibit is great for young and old. Enjoy lunch in the cafe and browse through the bookstore and holiday shop. If it's not raining, walk through the nearby Japanese Garden to see the fall colors on the trees.

Just saw the Frank Stella exhibition. It was a very nice retrospective. The museum is in a gorgeous setting in Golden Gate Park, boast underground parking, and has a nice cafe. They also do Friday socials. However, in the permanent collections many of the artists have minimal representation. They do have a wide range of art and artifacts (many pieces... More

I've visited the de Young many times over the years, usually for one of their special exhibits. I was there recently for the Oscar de la Renta exhibit and it was just fabulous! The displays are well laid out and well worth the price of admission (moderate price). Also saw the Liz Taylor collection of jewelry awhile back. Make sure... More

We were here on one of the stop of the Big Bus Tours, and did not regret it. It was such a refreshing way of viewing art in a sprawling environment. Best of all, they have a great cafe with one of the yummiest food (Thai Curry!) we had in SFO. So, it was a nice stop and good for... More
