    About DeYoung Museum

    The de Young Museum in San Francisco is open six days a week, from Tuesday to Sunday. Its opening hours are 9:30 AM – 5:15 PM.   

    The museum remains closed on Mondays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day. 

    Due to its location in a large urban park, the museum becomes more attractive to visitors during the warm season. If you want to combine your visit with a pleasant walk or even a picnic, do it in spring or summer.  

    The museum usually gets busier after 11:00 AM, so the best way to avoid crowds and catch some quiet time is to arrive early in the morning. 

    • Explore the entire history of American art

    The de Young Museum collection showcases American art from the 17th century to the present day. Wandering the museum halls, you can admire paintings, sculptures, and decorative art objects created by Native American cultures, European immigrants, enslaved Africans, and their descendants. 

    • Feel the vibe of indigenous cultures 

    The museum celebrates the richness and diversity of art from different parts of the globe, including Oceania, Africa, and Central and South America. You will see a wide range of art pieces, from ancient figures made of terracotta to brilliantly colored mural fragments.    

    • Dive into the colorful world of costume and textile arts

    The museum collection includes thousands of textiles and costumes of any kind, from Turkmen carpets and Indian silks to couture pieces designed by Coco Chanel and Christian Dior.
