de Young Museum – Overview
The much-beloved de Young Museum offers its visitors the very best of San Francisco. Founded in 1895, the museum has been a success ever since it first opened.
The fine arts museum is located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. It is names after the newspaperman M. H. de Young.
With an impressive collection of over 27,000 works of art, guests of all ages can gaze upon some of the world’s best American artwork from colonial times to the 20th century. The museum also boasts an amazing permanent gallery dedicated to African art with over 180 objects showcasing the continent’s creativity, diversity, and richness.
With a dramatic copper facade, that is perforated and textured to give off the impression made by light filtering through a tree canopy, the de Young seeks to complement its natural surroundings. With a nod to its past, the museum’s young visitors can enjoy the sphinx sculptures and the Pool of Enchantment while parents relax under the sun on the lush grounds.
American, African or Oceanic Arts, or does Costume and Textile Arts rather spark your interest? The collection of the museum is huge and there is something interesting to see for everyone. The Fine Arts museum is home to a variety of temporary exhibits, too. Be sure to not miss them during your visit!
