de Young Museum, San Francisco

4.4
Rebuilt after an earthquake, de Young Museum can resist seismic shaking with its striking twisted tower. This modern complex in Golden Gate Park holds collections of American and contemporary international art. Archives of American art dating back to the 17th century, including textiles and costumes, make the museum exceptional. Textiles come from as far away as Turkey, and the costumes showcase early fashions from designers such as Christian Dior. Our San Francisco trip planner makes visiting de Young Museum and other San Francisco attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This place was amazing!! The architecture alone will leave you astounded. A great place to chill and take in the creative energy. Or to get inspired to create something magical. The observation center is free and is a treat with a 360 view of the Golden Gate parka dm the surrounding area. Such a great spot and the cafe is great for a lunch out. A must if your in the area!
  • The building is beautiful to see when your walking up to it. Going inside, don't bring a backpack because you are not allowed to keep it on your shoulders. All bags must be below your hips. On top of the observatory, the views are nice. Great place to take a panoramic. I did not go into the museum because I had my backpack and didn't want to hold it like a shopping bag. The little restaurant inside is quaint. The prices were very high for my liking and the coffee was not a good as I thought it would be. Overall, I could have skipped this place on my tour through "San-Fran"
