    Tihe architecture is impressive the museum itself not so much unfortunately. The permanent collection really has a provincial taste to it..

    Caution: this museum is a lot bigger than it looks. Allow 4-5 hours if you want to see a special exhibition as well as the regular galleries.

    デ・ヤング美術館:ヘルツォーク&ド・ムーロン(2005)。アメリカの美術作品を中心に収集するサンフランシスコで最も歴史ある美術館。建物を覆った銅版は網目状になっており、そこから木漏れ日のような日差しが注ぎ込む。潮風により発生した緑色の錆も美しい。9階建の塔の最上階には展望台があり、360度サンフランシスコの景色が楽しめる。

    I really enjoyed key pieces. The exhibits are impressive. Was disappointed that I bought a City Pass booklet but the Museum wanted an additional $14 for the featured exhibit! No Bueno.

    In 1884, he was shot by an irate businessman, Adolph B. Spreckels, apparently due to a negative newspaper article, but survived. So think about that when you walk around Spreckels Lake (in GGPark).

    The best part of the de Young Museum is the observation deck & the Ruth Asawa exhibit that's not even part of the ticketed museum area.

    While their permanent collection is a little lack luster, I still love this museum. They have the best traveling exhibits and the observation tower odds the best view in the entire city (and free!)
