Good to visit without kids.
, Mar 2022
Observation tower! Absolutely beautiful view of Golden Gate Park and the rest of SF. The art is wonderful but most of the descriptions seem to find something wrong with America on which to focus… like not just the rooms focused on racial issues or on immigration but nearly every piece in the museum.
We had a fantastic time....

Enjoyable day

The impressive artwork and spacious building. Friendly staffs but one only with angry eyes!! Nice garden sculptures and the BIG safety pin!
100% Worth it!

Golden Gate Park was gorgeous and a fun place to walk around and hang out. We went to see the Judy Chicago exhibit at the de Young which was impressive! We also went to the top of the museum to get a 360 view of the city. Awesome. Highly recommend!
The Museum is a neat place to explore.

The skyline was closed due to maintenance, but despite that, my experience was pleasant. I had a nice time looking at the paintings and sculptures. They have a video projected on the wall towards the end and that was very cool. I also enjoyed reading about each piece of art and gaining a better understanding of the story behind them. Overall, the museum was neat and interesting.
Poor customer service
, Aug 2021
I did not have a good experience and will not use again. I mistakenly purchased tickets or the wrong day and called IMMEDIATELY — 90 seconds later— and could not get an exchange or refund. I know I made an error but ZERO customer service. Not impressed.

My daughter loved it. She loved upper level. It was very fascinating and love the first floor paintings. Read almost every interesting facts.
, Jun 2021
It was boring. Nothing special. Art museum employees unfriendly. I wouldn’t go back. Art brochure had no information about the rooms th ewr mes etc.
Not what I expected.
, Jun 2021
Outside sculptures were nice. I also thought the oil paintings were interesting. Thought there would be more ancient artifacts.
No entry to Frida exhibit
, Oct 2020
Ticket purchase was deceptive on the website. We thought we were buying tickets to the Frida Kahlo exhibit- it stated no where that it was sold out. The museum was cool as always but we were there to see Frida. Will try again!
