Located not far from Union Square, SFMOMA is easy to get to. The building itself is modern, with exhibits spread over 6 floors. We were advised to start on the 6th floor and work our way down. By the time we got to the second floor, we were saturated! If you are a fan of the ‘contemporary’ artists (eg Picasso, Matisse, Rodin), you might wish to start on the second floor. One of the better displays was the section on photography (Floor 3), especially the exhibition entitled ‘Don’t! Photography and the Art of Mistakes’. There were photographs showing different techniques used to either destroy or enhance a photograph. Highly educational for the amateur photographer. To do MOMA any justice, you need to spend several hours over several visits.

We were there years ago before it underwent a major expansion. This time they had an Andy Warhol exhibit that was fantastic in addition to their contemporary permanent collection.

I liked almost everything about the museum as an event venue. Its location, the look and the layout really was worth it. The only thing I had a problem with is the intense red in the bathroom. Wow!
