The de Young Museum is a fine arts museum that opened in Golden Gate Park in 1895. The new building that opened in 2005 is designed using perforated copper for the façade to mimic its surrounding park area. The museum showcases American art dating back to the 17th century to modern times. It also exhibits Art, Textiles, Ceramics and more from the Pacific and Africa. One can also find exhibits of contemporary international art here.

Lots of different attractions to visit if you have lots of time. We were limited to time so we decided on the De Young Museum. Lots of art work to see. Adult fee was $15 per person. Children 17 and under are free. We recommend parking in the structures. Street parking is also available but beware of theft in the area. Park in a high traffic area if possible.
A very beautiful museum. Definitely one of the to go to in SF. If you've gone once you've seen a solid permanent collection with worldwide pieces of different cultures. I feel some pieces are much more interesting than others. Apart from that there are other exhibits (non-permanent ones) that I feel are very well chosen. I've had very gratifying experiences on the non-permanent exhibits. The store is lovely. Usual beautiful, colorful yet expensive stock. And the cafeteria is delicious yet with simple dishes.
Incredible art with a reasonable discount for students in a city that seems to forget we're on a tight budget. There was so much to see and quite a variety of exhibits from many different time periods. The presentation was fantastic, and the architecture of the building was also something to admire. I would caution against going on the first day of a show due to crowds, but it's definitely manageable if that kind of thing bothers you. Also, unless you want something specific to the exhibits, consider shopping elsewhere. The gift shop has quite a few things but almost all of it can be found for less other places.
Attended a holiday party here, where only part of the main floor of the exhibits were open. The location is nice, and conveniently provides underground parking to the venue (though its a fixed price of about $20). About half of the exhibition was the same as the year prior, and at one point, we were told that we were not allowed to view part of the gallery that was open to guests. The layout was nice, having several different rooms and areas from which to gather and get as close to or as far away from the DJ in the main foyer as you desired. Overall good for one year, but maybe not as a regular venue, unless they open up more of the museum.
The observation deck has some cool views of the surrounding area. The art had a great selection as well. Some of the paintings were breathtakingly beautiful. The lighting in the exhibit halls is dim and there's lots of space to walk around. I actually got a bit turned around and a little lost at one point! They have paintings, sculptures, textiles, furniture, silversmithed items, and then a special exhibit depending on what's there at the present moment. The wait to get a general admission ticket was short and the cost was fair (the observation deck was free to go to. They have some cute things in the gift shop section as well, like a "fog globe" featuring the Golden Gate Bridge instead of a snow globe). They have a dining hall on the first floor with an alright choice of items, lots of seating areas as well. They have private function rooms on various floors, though I did not see them in person. Great museum.
