This is one of my favorite museums in SF. They have fantastic exhibits & rotating shows featuring some of the best Modern Artists. The cafe is wonderful too & there is a very nice gift shop for people traveling or those that want to purchase Art books. My family & I always have a very enjoyable time here. I highly recommend SFMOMA!

"More of a fashion show"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 11, 2019 NEW
I enjoy taking in the sights and creativity of all types. What I don’t enjoy is so many people using the art as a fashion show. The staff should take steps to curtail the slough of people blocking the art by taking photos of themselves with the art. Very few people even looked at the artwork and what it was about. It detracted from the experience for us and became a big joke. The De Young museum was better and had visitors that were there for the art.

It's even bigger than the one in New York City. Not only bigger, but in some respects also better. If you like modern art, don't miss it.
