    The Snøhetta wing has vastly expanded the original Mario Botta building, though the new galleries don't benefit from much natural light. They are spacious, however, and the collection superb.

    An incredible collection of modern and contemporary art. Not to be missed! You only need to go a couple of times to make the membership worth it.

    Download the museum "immersive walks". Incredible Experience. Program for a whole day. You can have lunch outside and come back. Desert must be the Tiramissu at the cafe on fifth floor. Stunning!

    The whole museum is lovely. After their renovation, they have lots of space for exciting temporary exhibitions. The rooftop sculpture garden is a great way to take a mid-visit respite.

    The museum has an extensive collection of 20th century art, from Fauvism and Cubism to Pop Art, Minimalism, and Abstract Expressionism. SFMOMA also boasts a notable collection of photography. Read more

    One of the best values in SF. A museum for $25? That's fantastic. Open later on Thursdays and definitely avoid it during a rainy day - everyone and their mother shows up here. The MOMA app is terrible

    Don't miss the 2nd floor bathrooms. Pace yourself. The cafe actually has really great food and desserts!

    SFMO had seven floors of galleries and exhibits and all kinds of art from past to present. I would recommend going at least once if you haven't gone before.

    I don't think there is any excuse for an art lover to miss this place. Even though you might know all the works, they offer a wide range of tours around the museum to join in to expain your knownledge

    The store has a LOT of good potential gifts. Even if you don't walk in for it, spend some time looking at the books, the selection is very interesting .

    I have been here more than 10 times, and I still can't get enough of it! FYI, it's the biggest MOMA in the US, and I think that becoming a member is well worth it.

    Be prepared to spend the whole day here if you want to see everything! The Mattise/Deibenkorn exhibit is pehnomenal. Don't forget to stop by Sightglass coffee to grab a latte before you go!

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

    The audio tour is really incredible and totally immersive. Join the wifi and download the free app. It's location based and adds so much extra context to the work you are viewing.

    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.

    Vast collection means you can't see everything. Consider grabbing the audio guide or downloading the iOS app for interactive tours. Definitely adds to the experience!

    Check out the temporary Edvard Munch exhibit while it is still here (ends October 8 or 9). Fantastic artist, who is often overlooked given some of the giants in that era.

    Fan-fucking-tastic place to look at some art, both from old standbys (there are many here, especially US artists) and lesser-known ones.

    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.
