I am the worst museum goer that exists on this green Earth. After my coworker begged me the whole day to go with him to the first free Tuesday of the month at MOMA, I finally accepted. I love museums, but sometimes I feel like I can draw a happy face or a blue line, but it just doesn't cut it. When we got there, the gentlemen in the entrance said to my coworker who is a male to either carry his backpack or carry it on the front. He looked like a pregnant man. I was wearing heels and was making so much noise, clack clack clack...and I was loud, saying cool, oh my, WOW..look at that..taking the elevator, taking silly pics, speaking in different languages, just having fun. There is about 5 floors, very modern, ...

My review is probably colored (haha) by the fact that I had a corporate membership and did get to see the Stein collection for free. (Thus the 4 star review) That being said, we would have been more than willing to pay to see the special Stein collection exhibit. The Stein family had an extensive collection of Matisse and Picasso and we were surprised to find that there were a lot of paintings from Picasso's blue period. The depth and the breadth of the collection would rival a museum in Europe. The use of colors are stunning and there was something very intimate and personal knowing how close these great artists were to the Stein family and you can really see the personal side in the artwork that was on dis...

It's been ages since I've been to the SF MOMA.  We end up finding the exhibits at the De Young and Asian Art Museum more interesting. I was drawn back to the SF MOMA for The Steins Collect exhibition. Really interesting collection (what an endeavor it must have been to reunite all...

The SFMOMA is a great space with a collection that doesn't quite meet the hype or the cost. Seriously, the tickets are $18 for adult, $25/$27 for the special Stein exhibit (which we'll get to, and was awesome). Consider that the MOMA in New York is $20, and has a far more historic collection, and that price tag is steep. But first, a digression on the Stein exhibit, which was curated phenomenally with a vast array of art from the late 19th to mid 20th century. The exhibition narrated the life and times of the Stein family, intermingled with their art, their artists, and the evolution of the times. It's timed entry, but even that didn't prevent the place from being absolutely packed.So while the story was inc...

this place is beautiful mainly because i am a huge sucker for art. i came here when i was a kid for school field trip and i remembered there was a kids activities and i enjoyed it a lot. after many years, and now as a college student, my psychology teacher gave out extra credits and one of the extra credit is to come to SFMOMA. so i made a date with my girl friend to come here. we came on a thursday evening at 6pm because they have a discount of half price and with a student ID is 11$ so we paid 5.50$ a person. that was such a great deal. anyway, we walked in and so much had changed since i was a kid. we walked on every floor and explored- my eyes were so amazed. beautiful art! in addition, there is a 5th fl...

Great museum--and much more extensive than I had expected--we saw only a small part of it. We went largely to see the Matisse, Picasso, etc. paintings that had been collected by Gertrude Stein's family. Out timing was such that we were able to see the special exhibit on a busy Sunday, without waiting. The exhibit was so mobbed that it was hard to enjoy/appreciate at times. But what a collection! Much as I liked some of the Matisse, Picasso, & other paintings, I was more moved by the photographs in the "Face of Our Time: Jim Goldberg, Daniel Schwartz, Zanele Muholi, Jacob Aue Sobol, Richard Misrach" exhibit--particularly Misrach's pictures of Hurricane Katrina's aftermath. Nearly brought me to tears. Talk abo...

Free Tuesday of the Month at SF MOMA.  Except for special exhibits, such as "The Steins Collect."  Instead of paying $25 and other prices of admission, it is $7 today!  I was not planning on going back for a second visit; I decided to go for it since it was a reasonable price.  Must come back in before 6 September, the last day.  Then again, 6 September is the first Tuesday.  Will be there before doors open! I had no idea how influential the Stein Family was in introducing modern art in the USA.  I just knew of Gertrude Stein for her writing, especially her book on Alice B. Tolkas.  I could kind of relate to the Stein Family; my parental unit wanted their children to be well-educated and cultured.   I found ...

I came to see the Steins Collection and it was really nice to see the work of Warhol, Matisse, Dali, and Pollock's work. However, it's expensive. Students get $8 off, but it's still like $11 even with the discounted ticket, on top of $14 parking (if you...

If you come here on September 7, 2011 then you have royally screwed up. From now until September 6th, there is an amazing exhibit, "The Steins Collect" which is a collection of pieces that formerly belonged to Gertrude Stein and her family. The collection features works by Picasso and Matisse with a few Cezanne's and others. I came expecting to see one to two rooms of artwork and we would be out there in 30 minutes. I was way off, this exhibit seemed to go on forever with rooms filled with amazing pieces of art work. And in between the paintings there was detailed about the life of the Stein family and their love for art. There were photos of their former apartment in Paris and letters and writings. This exh...
