Full description
SFMOMA now expands to 170,000 square feet, featuring outstanding holdings of more than 33,000 modern and contemporary artworks by Alexander Calder, Frida Kahlo, Julie Mehretu, and numerous others, including an entire floor dedicated solely to photography. With six art-filled terraces, a new sculptural staircase and Roman steps where the public can gather, a variety of dining options, and a Museum store offering artful gift options for everyone, SFMOMA is an unforgettable experience and a must-see San Francisco destination.   The museum is committed to exploring the new, the challenging, and the unexpected. From its internationally recognized and rapidly growing collection of more than thirty thousand artworks to its innovative film and performance programs, SFMOMA has continuously advanced the interpretation, presentation, and preservation of modern and contemporary art — embracing its connection to the world around us. Reflecting the Bay Area’s tradition of technological innovation and forward thinking, the museum was one of the first American art museums to recognize photography and film as art forms, and championed architecture, design, and media arts before they were focuses of museum collecting. The museum houses deep holdings of work by individual artists across their careers, particularly within its Painting and Sculpture collection. The museum are also dedicated to supporting and collecting the work of California artists, especially those active in the Bay Area. Artists are at the center of the work on display. Curators and conservators work directly with artists to interpret, present, and care for an artwork across its lifetime, even — as in the case of performance — if it’s only for one night. Located in San Francisco’s bustling SoMA district, SFMOMA is just steps from Yerba Buena Gardens, downtown hotels, the Moscone Center, public transportation (including BART and Muni), and numerous parking garages. SFMOMA's garage on Minna Street is a few steps from the museum's main entrance on Third Street. Plus, parking on-site directly supports the museum. Limited bicycle parking is also available.

      Reserve an early reservation and definitely try to visit the bridge first thing as the line builds! Overall, an amazing experience. Very friendly and incredibly helpful security and staff in each exhibit. I brought my four-year-old daughter. While the exhibits are aimed at more mature audiences (we went in knowing this information), I found having a discussion about the tape on the floor and expectations and rules before heading in to be rather helpful. She knew what to expect and wasn't put off by my reminders for her to step back. It gets a tad stuffy indoors, so take advantage of the beautiful sculpture gardens on the different floors' terraces.

      We loved the user-friendliness of the museum and loved Warhol.

      Themuseum is simply stunning, and its staff superb. The collections are tastefully displayed and everything is user-friendly. The only downside I have to report is that the main food offerings were over the top expensive. My suggestion is to have more reasonably-priced items to eat and you will do much more business. This is why I gave a four rather than a five star rating for the museum.

      A variety of themes in a great setting

      The new (to me) expansion is very consumer friendly. The pieces are spread out with places to rest everywhere. I went on Easter so it wasn’t crowded. The variety of works runs the spectrum from impressionists to social media works. The in situ restaurant was a bit precious and pricey. Tater tot sized fritters, two pieces of bread with fancy butter and a glass of tea $28.
