Wow. There were a few interesting pieces, but the majority of the exhibits were the equivalent of a 3 year old's finger painting. If they follow in the steps of their city, I'm sure they will exhibit poop on the floor next. I would avoid...More

this is a fine arts museum, which stands next to the Japanese tea garden in Golden Gate Park. Worth a visit, if you plan to go to the Academy of Arts museum on the opposite side, and Japanese Tea Garden next door. All worth the...More

de Young is one of the notable venues in San Francisco, it is surrounded by the lush serenity of the Golden Gate park and hosts fantastic exhibits through out the year.

Because of the size of the museum, one needs at least a half day and good walking shoes. We went in the middle of the week and it was not at all crowded. Each exhibit is dedicated to one artist, his contemporaries and his genre.

Sorry for the delay as we were traveling, but I'd say 2-3 hours which is what I believe a group or private tour is. All depends on your love of the art and time you like to take to savor the pieces. Enjoy!

There are other special exhibits all year. Their website can let you know the dates. They also run shows at the Legion of Honor, it is another museum about 15 minutes away from the deYoung.
