“A must visit”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

It worth spending a few hours here while you are driving around SF sightseeing the Golden Gate bridge and the Fort near by. You also get a beautiful view of the bay. Parking might a problem depending on the season and time of the day. We visited this place mid morning and late afternoon so you have the opportunity to take some sunset photos.

“Art Museum”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

New tapestries were added to the museum and they are absolutely beautiful. The entire museum is laid out so well that it is very easy to move through the museum and expose yourself to quite a number of great works.

“Good special exhibit on Impressionists!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Otherwise this museum is probably not worth a visit (except for views of the bay and the architecture and the (George Segal) Holocaust memorial.
You decide.

“Impressionists”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

My wife and I took our adult children to this exhibit in August of 2013. The Impressionists were very nice. I am not much of an art critic but I felt like we were part of history just by viewing these "Old Masters" We stayed for maybe 2 hours and I was very proud of my son ( 16) for sticking with it for that long. This location is just beautiful with Panoramic Views of the The Golden Gate Bridge, Downtown S.F., and surrounding areas.

“Toured The Museum At A Wedding And Saw Monet & Renoir Paintings...Wow!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Part of the wedding included guests touring the museum with cocktails. It was amazing to see the exhibits featuring boats done by, among others, Renoir and Monet. Very impressive. Architecture of the building is worth the visit alone.
