de Young Museum, San Francisco CA

The de Young, a fine arts museum located in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, is one of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco along with the Legion of Honor. The de Young is named for its founder, early San Francisco newspaperman M. H. de Young.
Founded in 1895 in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the de Young Museum has been an integral part of the cultural fabric of the city and a cherished destination for millions of residents and visitors to the region for over 100 years.
On October 15, 2005, the de Young Museum re-opened in a state-of-the-art new facility that integrates art, architecture and the natural landscape in one multi-faceted destination that will inspire audiences from around the world. Designed by the renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and Fong & Chan Architects in San Francisco, the new de Young provided San Francisco with a landmark art museum to showcase the museum’s priceless collections of American art from the 17th through the 20th centuries, Textile arts, and art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

The de Young Museum, a favorite of San Francisco residents and visitors since 1895, is located at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive in the heart of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

Ashlie S. from Watsonville on yelp said “Went here for the first time today and brought 5 kids ages 2 1/2-16 and everyone had a blast!! Amber the manager, roped off a special space for the little ones so they wouldn’t get trampled, which as a mom, I totally appreciated! The other Staff members were friendly and on top of all safety issues. You can tell it is a well run
gym. My 7 year old loved the foam pits, which he got to flip into. It was even fun for the adults. Highly recommend this place for an afternoon of fun. Amber told us that on Fridays after 9 PM they have disco lights and a DJ and are open until midnight! We will definitely be doing future birthday parties here. Reasonably priced and so fun. :)”
