Founded in 1895 in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, the de Young Museum has been an integral part of the cultural fabric of the city and a cherished destination for millions of residents and visitors to the region for over 100 years.

In October of 2005, the de Young Museum re-opened in a state-of-the-art facility that integrates art, architecture, and the natural landscape in one multi-faceted destination that will inspire audiences from around the world. Designed by the renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and Fong & Chang Architects in San Francisco, the de Young provides San Francisco with a landmark art museum.

The museum's collections include American art from the 17th through the 21st centuries, contemporary art, international contemporary art, textiles, and costumes, and art from the Americas, the Pacific, and Africa.

Comments about Smart Destinations deYoung Museum:

Great museum and visiting exhibit (100 Musee d'Orcy paintings) but you have to pay more to see it and there is a long wait. Check it out before you decide.
