It was boring. Nothing special. Art museum employees unfriendly. I wouldn’t go back. Art brochure had no information about the rooms th ewr mes etc.
Not what I expected.

Outside sculptures were nice. I also thought the oil paintings were interesting. Thought there would be more ancient artifacts.
No entry to Frida exhibit

Ticket purchase was deceptive on the website. We thought we were buying tickets to the Frida Kahlo exhibit- it stated no where that it was sold out. The museum was cool as always but we were there to see Frida. Will try again!

We purchased our tickets online from VIATOR so we’re shocked when we got to the DeYoung to find out the museum was sold out for the day and we wouldn’t be admitted . Ticket person had a small attitude but changed when I told her I was a tourist from Boston and we had never been there before. She called a supervisor over who admitted us.
Smooth process

Great museum - my favorite in SF! Nice service from viator, and was able to get my ticket pass at the desk. Hoping in the future they can make it electronic.
DeYoung is wonderful. Viator is not.

THIS REVIEW IS NOT FOR THE MUSEUM. The museum is wonderful. I bought a ticket for the DeYoung on Viator off a link on a Facebook article about a special exhibit. The article talked about the exhibit and the link underneath said “Buy tickets here.” When we got to the DeYoung, we learned that what I had bought was a coupon to be redeemed for general admission. We also didn’t have a reservation for the day we purchased for (which is needed now because of Covid). Thanks to the wonderful staff at the DeYoung we managed to get in for general admission even though they were full. I will never buy a ticket on Viator again.

Even having pre-paid for admission, we still had to wait in a long line to get the voucher exchanged for a ticket to get into the museum. The museum itself was fun and interesting I especially liked the tower.
