Renovated about 5 years ago, the DeYoung Museum was always a pretty darn good museum that finally started showing its age. Now, it is a superlative museum here in SF. It has an eclectic collection of art from all over the world from all different times, and the pieces are actually shown with great lighting and great information that is updated! Visit it. While it is no Getty museum, it is a huge step forward for SF in the museum world. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time here. Also, a great museum store!

Great Job - they did a wonderful job in rebuilding this San Francisco tradition - the exhibits are great - you can see everything up front - I have been going to this museum for years - they have a lot of special exhibits and events - the staff is friendly and helpful.

My daughter loves to come here and look around. She could spend hours just roaming and sitting. I think they did a great job on the new building. We love going up to the top floor and look around.

This is a favorite of mine from childhood and I am so glad it has reopened and looks so beautiful. I really like the new building. The kids got a bit bored but they liked the gift shop.

It is well worth the $70 to become a member as it gives you and a friend unlimited entries.
Real easy way to appear debonir and sophisticated.
The tower is free to get into.

The re-opening of the de Young in October 2005 was worth the wait. It was better than I expected. The tower is not visually appealing to many people, but there was a lot of thought put into it. And the copper "skin" varies in color according to season and will eventually get a green hue like the surrounding trees; I think it's a brilliant idea. The view from the tower is stunning. It's a unique view of San Francisco and beyond. There's the usual art ranging from ancient Egyptian to modern times. The cafe and museum store are great.

I went to the grand opening of the new museum, and can't say enough good things about it. The exhibits are wonderful and nicely spaced out within the museum. I loved the furniture on display, as well as the clothing. I also was amazed at the quality of the food at the museum cafe, especially at such low prices! The food is really really good. The museum shop is top notch too.
