Modern art is fascinating to me. After high school, I decided to delve into modern art. It is something that I have been studying for many years now. I can't say that I work in the industry, though I have trained my eye for modern art. It is not something that everybody is interested in or finds that they can understand. SFMOMA has become a home to me. If you get yourself a membership for $100, you can go whenever you want in a year's time. You can bring a friend. They have events and discounts. SFMOMA is a true gem in San Francisco. I have already posted on Yelp so much about SFMOMA. The collection is mostly from the owners of clothing retailer Gap. They remodeled the building less than 5 years ago and it's completely different. Been visiting SFMOMA for years now. SFMOMA is worth it for tourists and locals. It's a great museum and it's at the forefront of modern art. They have Clyfford Still, Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Diego Rivera, and a whole lot more. There's always exhibits you haven't seen. And especially the photography exhibits are worth seeing. They have some restaurants, but you can skip the cost and find a restaurant nearby.

I'm not particularly a fan of modern art but I love SF-MOMA. The base collection is quite good and there are always interesting visiting exhibitions that make a return visit worthwhile. My wife and I try to stop in once to twice a year to see what's new. On our recent visit, there were two fabulous photography exhibitions by Louis Stettner and Brassai in addition to the Magritte exhibit. Amazing! A great museum in a beautiful facility and we look forward to our next visit on a few months.

"Overrated, overpriced food, unwelcoming to children"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

This is a truly overrated museum. Guards are always staring (I've been to many museums and the guard are on watch without having to blatantly stare), they are very unwelcoming to kids and the exhibit, aside from the German art collection on the 6th floor, is sub par compared to the MOMA in New York or even the Met. Food in the restaurant tastes pretty good, but for the amount of money they charged I would much rather have booked a table at Farallon and brave the tourist crowd instead.

This is a lovely building with well thought-out exhibition halls, not to mention a giant permanent photography space, and some great places to eat. Highly recommended.
