Located in Yerba Buena Gardens, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) is the second most important museum of modern art in the United States after the MOMA of New York.
In its interior you can find contemporary and modern works ranging from paintings, sculptures and photography, to the most avant-garde creations.
In the Museum of Modern Art of San Francisco not only the exhibitions are eccentric. The outside of the building, designed by the prestigious architect Mario Botta, also attracts the attention, as it looks like an enormous brick box capped with a large cylinder.
Without any doubt, the most interesting works of the museum are to be found in the second floor. Here you can view some works from well known artists such as Matisse, Picasso, Dalí or Miró.
The remainder of the floors of the museum are only recommended for lovers of modern art. Seeing a cloth painted a single color is not something that we all can understand.
Before leaving the museum don't forget to pay a visit to the store. Here you will find odd and interesting objects that could make a perfect gift.
