What you can expect

Situated within the palm-dotted lawns of Golden Gate Park, the patinated copper, uber-modern exterior of the de Young museum—rebuilt in 2005 on the site of the original 1895 building—houses an extensive collection of American art, textiles, and anthropological pieces from Africa, the Pacific, and the Americas.

Spend a few hours or a full day admiring the artwork on display in this beloved iconic San Francisco landmark. The building’s architecture – designed with San Francisco’s earthquake-prone location in mind – is conceived to blend into the natural surroundings of eucalyptus trees and urban park space, despite its angular lines and twisting tower.

The centrepiece of the museum’s collection is its American artwork, which includes pieces from the 17th through the 21st century as well as items donated by John D. Rockefeller III. Admire examples of surrealism and pop art, contemporary and neoclassical and Federal era and impressionism. Roam the halls of the textiles exhibit to see historic garments from the world of haute couture, kilim rugs from Turkey and centuries-old silks from North India. In the Art of the Americas exhibit, check out ancient objects from Mexico and fantastically preserved Teotihuacan murals.

If you’re looking to pack in some more museum visits, your ticket is also good for same-day admission to the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park.
