The DeYoung has a 9-story observation tower which offers a 360-degree view of the city as well as the park itself. Admission to the tower is always free, and admission to the museum is free on Wednesdays. The museum store has many nice items.

Why? First you can go right there by bus, or easily park nearby. Then, regardless of the temporary exhibitions, the permanent collection is top class; the pictures of the American West are beautiful, and there is quality everywhere. In January the free exhibition of Maori...More

Yes, the Tower, I was belatedly advised, is free. I went to the Museum by Muni bus but there is parking between the Golden Gate Park and Martin Luther King Jr Dr. Check maps before you go. Prepare to spend at least 3-4 hours... More
