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.

I didn't have time to do this museum justice: spectacular Mayan collection, American art and south Pacific and African galleries. Allow 2.5-3.5 hours to do the museum justice, in addition to any... more »
The De Young museum is located on the edge of Golden Gate Park adjacent to the California Academy of Sciences. It us situated in a beautiful courtyard with 3 majestic fountains and beautiful landscaping. The De Young features a free lookout point at the very top of the building, which is a beautiful modern copper structure, a piece of art in itself. Featuring great variety of rotating exhibits and a vibrant permanent collection. Very much worth checking out and at a reasonable price, especially for students. Would definitely recommend.
I love the De Young Museum because, when I get into the quieter galleries, the museum has the feel of the "traditional" museums where it's hushed, and I can wander from gallery to gallery in that quiet atmosphere. It's nostalgic to me. (These comments are similar to the comments I made for the Legion of Honor.) I love it enough that I have decided to become a member. Special exhibits come and go; it's the permanence of the De Young that draws me in.
