This is a great museum allowing Autodesk to show off their latest modeling programs. The work that is being done, along a wide range of projects, is pretty interesting. This is not a traditional museum, more like a store but there's looking only, no buying....More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
