Comments about Smart Destinations San Francisco Museum of Modern Art:

We went during the first Tuesday of the month not realizing that it was free to the public that afternoon. I would never go back on a free day no matter what. Talk about crowds and craziness! We were happy we had a 3-day pass because we walked out and went back on Wednesday. They had some truly special exhibits on display. When we were there, we saw the Richard Serra Drawing exhibit - masterpieces! The rooftop sculpture garden is fantastic. Try the blue bottle coffee.
