I can’t help to stop by the SFMOMA anytime that I’m in San Francisco. There’s always something inspiring to find. I was little bit disappointed that the museum is only open til 5pm on Tuesdays there’s never enough time for me to go through all the exhibition floors. Parking is around the corner on Minna St, and staff can always point you to the different areas of the museum. If you want to pick your brain in unusual ways, stop by the museum. Audio is available to enhance your experience. #meetAndy

"A good museum to visit"

While working on a project in SF, I saw that the SFMoMA had an Andy Warhol special exhibit. While pricey, it was worth the visit. We are members of NY MoMA but they don't have any connection for reciprocity. The Warhol exhibit was very good. Other floors had enjoyable exhibits as well. Had lunch at Cafe 5 which was also good. I would recommend visiting SFMoMA if you have the chance.

One of my favorite museums in the US! It's soooooo great! My only disappointment was that Bubbles and Michael Jackson were not on display :((( but otherwise, a 5-star experience. I'd never seen Duchamp's fountain before, so that was pretty awesome. Joan Mitchell, Philip Guston, Gerhard Richter, Helen Frankenthaler, the gang is all here. Plus you get some really nice views from their outside balcony. Love the Louise Bourgeois spiders! The gift shop is one of my favorite stops because they always have fun jewelry. I was hoping to get one of the paper necklaces I bought last year, but they didn't have any :( instead I bought the fun gold moldable/abstract necklace. I wore it out that night and everyone I saw wanted to know where I'd gotten it. Can't wait to come back!

I didn't know that SF had a MoMa. If you are an art fan, I highly recommend going. It is not nearly as crowded as NYC. The layout is great and the organization of the pieces is thoughtful. I truly enjoyed my time there
