This was our first time here so we headed to the top floor and worked our way back down again. It has a weird layout but some amazing art!

I didn't have nearly enough time to explore this place. I was given some good advice by the gentleman that sold me my ticket. Pick 2-3 things you are really interested in and see those first. Then just browse until you get tired! I didn't...More

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is an absolute delight. I can't think of any other way to describe it. Never really serious but always thought provoking. Everything from Warhol to Rivera to Calder, familiar and outrageous. Open your mind and enjoy. I especially liked...More

I don't pretend to be an art critic, but I didn't have a feeling of "awe" when I was in this museum. To be sure, there is so much art, but it just didn't seem organized well and just seemed to go on and on....More

Make a plan if you want to go to MOMA. It will take hours to make sure you see and enjoy everything displayed in this museum. very modern and big museum. worth to visit.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized

I have encountered this problem at other venues in other cities as well. Maybe visitors need to write the museum about lowering the price for late admission. Who knows, it may work. There are lots of free or inexpensive... More
