Ed Ruscha

Loved the exhibit of Ed Ruscha. Went up to the tower, Ruth Ozawa, beautiful views 360 degrees. Don't miss the outdoor sculpture garden.

Not only was the art, ceramics and antique furniture spectacular, the building's architectural features are iconic.

Wish we had allocated more time to tour this awesome museum- one of many wonderful attractions in Golden Gate Park, which is a big city oasis of beauty and calm. The building's exterior is made of copper, stone, wood and glass. They have a store, cafe, and conference room, as well as the art exhibit rooms. We enjoyed taking the... More

Amazing views of San Francisco from the top of the De Young Tower. I really enjoyed walking around the gallery. A highlight is watching the artist at work.

Plenty of room, well appointed, tower gave a great view of area. Some areas required admission. There is some to see which doesn't. A great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

I admit I'm particular when it comes to museums and I like some art like Asian and Modern Art more than others. I just didn't find the artwork here to be that interesting personally.

This is one of my favorite museums. I frequently visit art museums, but there is just something about the deYoung museum. It's in a great location, it's charming, and it's not overwhelming. I have visited with my husband, kids, and solo and enjoy it everytime!

The ticket is worth the price as it comes with Legion of Honour. They provide a free closet for my camera bag. I spent 2 hours at de Young Museum this morning. I find it better to visit the Museum early in the morning before it gets crowded. It is a nice museum to hangout if you appreciate the arts.

Set in the fabulous Golden Gate Park, the de Young Museum is a spectacular building housing several collections of artwork. Personally, I found the building to be the most impressive part of the museum; it's striking design setting it apart from the mainly natural surroundings. Whilst I'm sure the collections would enthral many visitors, they were not to my taste;... More

Golden Gate Park was packed with people/bus tours, a band playing in the middle between the de Young Museum and the California Science Museum ... and person after person, group after group walked up to the doors, only to turn around and walk back after reading the hours "Closed on Mondays" - too bad ... they lost a LOT of...
