Stunning art museum, with a varied and eclectic collection, wonderful shop and good cafe, which was a fine place of refuge on a day turned cold and blustery.

Stop in even for an hour if you can. The permanent Ruth Asawa art alone is sufficient reason for going. The observation deck is nice. A wide range of works, definitely a must-do on your Golden Gate Park adventure.

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
