De Young Museum exhibits

The de Young Museum is a fine arts museum located in the heart of the Golden Gate Park, a few meters from the California Academy of Sciences.

The museum was inaugurated in the year 1895 but it had to be demolished after the earthquake of 1989. It was in the year 2005 when it opened its doors again to show its collections of art from the 19th and 20th centuries and its great African art exhibition.

De Young is arranged geographically, so it is very convenient to visit and to know what is being observed at each moment. Probably the most novel and interesting part is the African Area, packed with masks that represent animals and a huge number of carved wooden figures that seem to hide fearsome curses.

The de Young Museum has audio guides to facilitate your visit, although they are not included in the admission price.

Before leaving the museum

Before leaving the museum do not miss the opportunity of climbing its watchtower that, although not too high, is a good place to observe San Francisco, its little houses and its hills to the point in which they blend with the ocean.
