  • It's a beautiful museum right around the corner from the Museum of Moderm Art. It's a bit small. The first floor is mostly a gift shop. The exhibits are on the second and third floors. To their credit the collection of art was stunning. I appreciate that they took care to collect art from the different places where the diaspora had gone - it gave the museum a global feel.
  • It's a really great museum with a good focus on bringing new artists to the scene. Plus the staff are really nice! The layout of the building is well organized and the exhibits are accessible. Definitely recommended as a must see if you're visiting San Fran.
