The title says it all; worth the visit if you have even a passing interest in modern art. If you are a member of one of the modern art related museums in the US ask about free entry based on reciprocal relations (there are two...More

Personally I prefer the MoMA in New York but the Chuck Close mosaic like portraits are mind blowing - view them from a distance and then gradually walk closer and closer to see how the portrait is built up from abstract circles and shapes separately...More

Really enjoyed my time here but the tickets were pricey. They had famous artist's work there and some interactive exhibits.

Not our first visit, and most likely not our last... We are quite familiar with MOMA's collection, so it is easy to quickly go to the new exhibits and spend time viewing only those. The museum is big and has so much to see that...More

The only thing I don't like is expensive parking fee. But it's SF, so I shouldn't complain much. Public transit is always a viable option too. You can easily spend half a day or a full day at SFMOMA.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
