    Did you know? Opened in 1935, SFMOMA was the first museum on the West Coast dedicated to contemporary and modern art. It was also one of the first museums to recognize photography as a fine art. Read more

    They have a coffee shop, every museum should do this. We visited the Graphic Design Exhibition, the Photography and the Pop art. We still missed 4 floors.

    Go out to the terrace and catch your breath. There's a secondary one behind the oculus bridge that is less crowded.

    Christian Marclay's "Clock" is a tremendous 24 hour montage of movies clips synchronized to your time of viewing. Limited myself to 1 hour knowing the line to see this artwork was extremely long.

    After looking at the artwork, take a moment to step onto the outdoor deck and appreciate the shapes that the city's downtown skyline cuts.

    Some rules-- No backpacks on your back (hold by your side or front is fine), no videos (non-flash photography is fine), no touching the furniture on display, no touching the Braun exhibit tables.

    It's packed... So come with patience. Also they are giving away free tote bags... And museum is stating open until midnight. But if you want coffee in the gardens, that closes at 5pm

    If you're from NYC, you'll be bored to death by the miniature nature of the layout. This place is best explored in a wheelchair.
