Tips from locals
Great architecture and lots of wonderful Warhol and Lichtenstein art pieces on display now.
Wonderful art exhibits that change seasonally if you haven’t gone it’s definitely worth the visit. Also, there is an exquisite restaurant that serves amazing inventive food for $$$$ if you are willing to pay.
A museum building which is worthy of the art it holds... Walk on the glass bridge. See Matisse's La Fauve. Frida Kahlo's Frieda and Diego Rivera, 1931. Take their free tour. paisa wasool.
San Francisco Museum of Modern Art is a great place to visit modern art exhibits and sometimes they have free day open to all visitors thruout the year. Worth checking out.

“The de Young often features traveling exhibits from all over the world. It's in a fantastic modernist building which has a tower that you can go up (free of charge) for a great view of Golden Gate Park and the surrounding city.”

“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park). You can also enter on Stanyan and Haight (and at many other points). Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”
