San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art Reviews & Ratings
One of San Francisco's must-see destinations, located within walking distance of Union Square. Explore seven floors of an internationally recognized collection of modern and contemporary art. Founded in 1935, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art was the first museum on the West Coast devoted solely to 20th-century art. General admission to the museum is $25. Members (who pay $100 a year) will be allowed free admission, as will visitors 18 and younger. Admission for seniors (65 years and older) is $22, and visitors ages 19-24 (with ID) will pay $19.
This was always one of my must-visits in terms of Art Museums. Was not disappointed at all! I quite liked the layout of all the art exhibits (easy to navigate throughout the museum), and the staff were also very friendly and helpful. There was a vast variety of artworks, some that I loved and admired, and even some that make you think to yourself "can this be considered art" but that's what art is supposed to be! Be prepared to allocate at least a couple to several hours to explore the entirety of SFMOMA as it has 7 floors (although the topmost floor is currently being closed as they're installing 2 exhibits that open in late Oct 2019). The museum also has some great views on upper floors that overlook the hustle of the city.
Amazing! Six floors displaying a thoughtfully installed collection of outstanding contemporary art—started with 1960s German art. Stunning open spaces with a variety of views outside—lovely outdoor areas as well. Not crowded on a Friday in summer. We skipped the Warhol special exhibition and still saw some of his (overrated) work in other galleries. Loved the fabulous experimental photo exhibition, painting and sculpture. Can easily spend half a day or more here. Excellent and very large museum store.
The new layout of the building is beautiful, especially the gardens and the cafe are well designed. There's a space exhibition, and that was interesting. Unfortunately the most of the exhibitions are disappointment. Modern design isn't a lack of design, but the art works are sadly far from the inspirational. They used be dynamic, passionate, and can be called 'ART.' So if you're looking for truly inspirational, beautiful art, you'd better go out to streets of downtown, art galleries in the City, or Golden Gate Park. There's so much better natural arts and true artists' art works you can find. And most of all, it's free!
I love this place, however, I would recommend going during a off time. When it’s packed it’s hard to enjoy the art. But overall the museum is clean and well organized and the food at the cafes was pretty good as well
