As far as MOMAs go the San Francisco one of (if not the) best. So much to see, you can easily spend an afternoon wondering around this museum.

"Typical modern art museum"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2018 NEW
The art here ranges from provocative to preposterous, which is pretty much the case with most modern art museums. Some works were excellent, while others were silly and pretentious. (A square of wood painted white is art? Please.) Worth a visit if you appreciate modern art or are interested in one of their particular exhibits.

I've been here several times for special exhibits and to the regular collection. It's casual and friendly and easy to get around. Inexpensive for San Francisco. They have parking!

"Yikes"

I don’t know how anyone is even able to get into this museum. We couldn’t find parking and we are not strangers to “downtown big city” driving, but it was chaos. We tried to go during late hours so maybe that was part of the struggle? Not sure. I do t want to rate the museum poorly because I didn’t get a chance to actually experience it, but location is a stressful situation. I’d recommend public transit or a Lyft/Uber
