Looks like Ken already said these but I thought you could have one more
view. I would recommend the MOMA. But I thought you might like to hear
from a fellow colleague that spends her summers in the Bay Area...
MOMA--excellent location if you are staying down town....easy access,
interesting architecture, usually good shows, some good permanent
collection, always a sure bet that you will see SOMETHING you love

De Young---Nice location in golden gate park--now even better because it
is across the street from natural sciences museum that JUST opened with
their living roof and all the fancy stuff. Very cool viewing deck.
Interesting architecture. Large collection of art/artifacts from all
over the world which is currently being fought over, family inheritance go and see it before it is taken away. A nice trip for the
whole family because you can see golden gate park, the tea garden,
natural history museum and other things in the park...also if you take a
bus or train you can go the beach very easily from there.

Legion of Honor---spectacular location but far from can
walk from there along the cliffs with outstanding views of the pacific,
the rocks, san fran, Marin headlands and the golden gate bridge and end
up at the Cliff House and Sutro Baths. Very nice for outdoorsy people
(not rec for little kids as they literally can run right off the
cliffs). Collection there is more early American and European.
Architecture is outstanding. Exhibitions are typically traditional, not

For more specific interests there are specialty art museums like a
cartooning museum and such.

Hi all,
   I'm frantically trying to get all the art ready for our first time
with 1st Artworks (a company that sets up art shows with the kids' work
in frames) I haven't used them before but thought we would try it. I
just got all the Square1 Magnet art sent in last month-we have used them
for several years and love their program, and we did Pinwheels for
Peace. I incorporated all of this into my regular lessons but it has
been a crazy first nine weeks of school...add to that getting ready for
a sub for 3 days because ... my husband and I are flying to S.F. with my
daughter and her husband. My daughter is running in her first marathon
on Sunday and we will have wed. through Monday to enjoy the city. I need
some advice from some locals ( or anyone in the know) If I can only drag
my group to one art museum -what do you suggest? And also what are the
must sees? I've only been to S.F. and that was when we were flying to
Japan the next morning for the Fulbright Memorial trip and I mostly saw
the airport!
      thanks in advance,
            Jeryl in SC
