Much to see here, but the place is well laid out and manageable. The cafe is OK. Nice sculpture garden. Usually there is an interesting special show.

One of my favourite places in SF. I've never managed both museums in one day, because we always have lunch at the DY. Go there by bus for a discounted ticket.

Definitely worth a visit along with the Legion of Honor museum. You should check the website for current ticket prices (both museums in one day on one ticket, I think). (I am a painter and kind of picky about these things.)
