We only stay at museums and art galleries for an hour or two (as my head gets full), but the SF MOMA visit was different. Everyone was so helpful, the art was wonderful and the special exhibits were spectacular - we stayed for hours!

I have been to this museum several times, but this is the first time I have been since the building reopened after remodeling. They did a beautiful job and there is so much more space for things. For some odd reason, a lot of the permanent collection is now hidden away on the second floor -you have to actively search it out. Louise Bourgeois' Spider sculptures have a stunning new room - don’t miss the oculus bridge. Also, don’t miss the giant Richard Serra sculpture accessed from stairs on the second floor. Lots to see.

Don't miss the Paul Klee Gallery, with its many Matisse works, and the German Art after 1960 Gallery (a lot of impressive Kiefer, Richter and Polke works). And there is always a wonderful special exhibition.

"Fantastic MOMA"

I love checking out art museums in the cities I visit. Being an old deadhead I’ve done quite a bit of traveling over the past few decades following that band and every chance I get I check out the art museums in whatever city I’m in. This MOMA truly lives up to its name. It’s pretty strictly modern art and it’s collection is fabulous. Well represented contemporary collection with the greats of modern art Warhol, Calder, Lichtenstein, Still. And many other lesser known but equally talented artists. The floor space is open and airy. The building itself has multiple floors and each floor has top quality representation of the artists in their collection. Not only did I like it my teenage daughter did as well and that was a surprise. In fact she ended up doing all the floors which totally shocked me. The outdoor sculpture gardens were great. Nice place to get a little air and sit down to rest. There is an elevator but it’s slow and the stairs may be a bit arduous for some people. It’s probably better to try to do this museum over two days but often that’s not practical. There’s a small cafe area for coffee. And best of all the gift shop is out of this world. We bought so much we had to have it shipped back home! But awesome stuff which you don’t see in every gift shop and believe me I’m a gift shop girl. I know my gift shops. If you’re in San Fran and you are an art lover this place is a must. If you want to find artsy or unique gifts just stop in the shop. You won’t be disappointed. World class all the way.
