SFMOMA is the perfect place to go on a chill afternoon with family & friends. The exhibition space planning is perfect and modern. There is a café inside, a gift shop, and fun restrooms! Make sure you go to the bathroom on every level (no...More

Five Stars now and not able to see everything in one visit. That's a good thing. The new flow is fantastic and there appear to be enough museum staff throughout to ask questions about directions and exhibits themselves.

We had a wonderful day looking around the MoMA. Wide range of art, some interactive and all thought provoking. The building itself is photo worthy, and it's a well stocked bookstore full of great toys and visuals. Highly recommend -- try to go when the...More

Lots to see so plan your visit. Spacious viewing areas and places to catch your breath. Restaurant was good too. I'm not commenting on the exhibits as this is down to personal choice.

We came quite late to the SFMOMA and at that time there were no tickets available. But you can also visit a few of the exhibitions on the ground floor without a ticket.

Not as big as NY MOMA, but has so many interesting pieces. Location is central and very accessible. Loved the terrace sculptures.

We came on Sunday at 10:30. The line wasn't bad at all. Adults were $25 each, and kids under 18 are free. We decided to go straight to the Munch exhibit in order to avoid the later-in-the-day crowds. It was very impressive. My seven-year-old and...More

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
