Art collection attests to the cultural pride and philanthropy of this city. Docent tours are terrific way to enjoy the art; then look around on your own. Take a break for lunch in the Cafe, which offers stellar food. Menu is diverse; grab a yogurt...More

We visited only the public areas of the museum since it seemed to be a bit expensive to enter - not that many things to see as compared to museums that one visits in other big cities

They always have great selections of art, but not all the time, check before you go if that is the type of art you like.

I got spoiled by museums in Paris and Florence. This museum was just so-so nothing really caught my attention.

Spectacular architecture, although controversial for the locals. They either love it or hate it. Apart from the architecture, the De Young collection is definitely worth a visit

Sorry for the delay as we were traveling, but I'd say 2-3 hours which is what I believe a group or private tour is. All depends on your love of the art and time you like to take to savor the pieces. Enjoy!

There are other special exhibits all year. Their website can let you know the dates. They also run shows at the Legion of Honor, it is another museum about 15 minutes away from the deYoung.
