Did some fantastic Christmas shopping for well-priced unique finds in the shop on Yerba Buena. Looking forward to the new MOMA.

We spent a full day here. So many different exhibitions under one roof and nice things to buy in the gift shop. A need to go for Art lovers.

Ok, this is an odd review because, as it turns out, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is closed for a rebuild until 2016. For those of us not local, who see it advertised as a top attraction, drive to the centre of the city, find a parking slot and work out how to use the parking meters (... More

Just to be clear, the actual museum is closed for renovations, until 2016. If you don't get through all of the details on the cluttered website, or is you just go with what is in a guidebook you may not realize that the museum location on 3rd is closed. There are exhibits in other locations, but if you wander by... More

SFMOMA is the greatest collection of modern art I have ever seen. I was impressed by the large number of pieces by the YBAs.

Next best thing to MOMA in NY. Wonderful space and architecture. Terrific exhibits that change periodically.

There are some phenomenal pieces on display from unknown, new artists. If you are going expecting to see a lot of the modern "classics" or more established, big name artists, you'll be disappointed in the SFMOMA. If you want to gain exposure to new and exciting artists, this is the place to do it. The layout of this museum is... More

Went with my girlfriend (now wife) on a 4 day SF trip. She is a much more avid cultural/museum goer than I am but we both really enjoyed both the building itself as well as the exhibits. Check on the rotating exhibits depending on when you visit.

I loved SFMOMA! I fell in love with all of the Diego Rivera and Andy Warhol pieces there. My BF did not dig it - he said it was too artsy so my time there was cut short. I would definitely go there by myself next time or with someone that's a bit more "artsty", take your time there's lots... More
