De Young Museum

Local nameDe Young Museum
LocationSan Francisco, United States

Located in the Golden Gate Park, this long-operating museum (opened in 1895) offers its visitors a look at great collections of art. It is one of the two fine arts museums in San Francisco and was founded by newspaperman M. H. de Young.

From modern paintings and sculptures to ancient American pottery, this museum is sure to provide fun for an entire afternoon - even though it is relatively small, it may take about three hours or more to see all the exhibits. The building of the museum is very modern, with the entirety of the premises accessible on a wheelchair. There is also a Japanese garden next to it.

When visiting, do not miss the museum's observatory tower – it offers a great view of the city and it is accessible without an extra charge.
If you travel on a budget, you will probably want to avoid the museum's café, which is a bit pricey. So is parking near the museum, so if you can, try to find a parking spot in one of the nearby streets or take a bus.

There is free entry on the first Tuesday of every month as well as for people with membership. There are also various lectures, guided tours and symposia hosted at the museum, for more information, check the museum's website.
