San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
It had been a long wait for modern art lovers, but after a three year closure and a $305 million renovation and expansion, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) reopened in May 2016, and was it ever worth the wait. A new 10-story addition from the renowned Norwegian design firm Snøhetta integrates seamlessly with the existing black-and-white striped atrium tower, giving San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood some serious eye-candy. It's also now the largest modern and contemporary art museum in America, with nearly triple its previous gallery space. New to the already impressive collection are selected works from the esteemed Doris and Donald Fisher Collection, featuring significant American and European artists of the 20th and 21st centuries such as Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Alexander Calder, George Baselitz, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore among many others. Gifts of painting, sculpture, drawings, media arts, and architecture made to the museum since 2009 also rotate through various galleries, while the entire third floor is dedicated to the Pritzker Center for Photography. Visitors take a breather in the tranquil sculpture garden with enormous living wall, or in the fifth floor Café 5. Along with offering free entry to visitors18-years-old and under, SFMOMA invites you to try In Situ, the museum’s signature 150-seat lounge and restaurant, helmed by Michelin-star chef Corey Lee, with a menu of dishes culled from the recipes of around 80 chefs from around the world.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

After being closed for three years, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art reopened in spring 2016 with a just-added 10-story expansion by the Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta. The new space provides room for some of the collection's larger pieces, like Richard Serra's monumental Sequence and mobiles by Alexander Calder, to shine. The museum's collection covers the best of modern and contemporary art in the United States, Europe and beyond, but it places special emphasis on Californian artists. From photographers of the American West to the latest works incorporating technology, the museum brings a decidedly San Francisco perspective to its mission.
