    San Francisco Museums?

    I just found out I get to go to SF for the wekend in September. When I was there for revelations I wasn't able to attend any museums, so since I only have a few days, I wanted to see what I should make sure I see?

    I get there on a Thursday and leave on a Sunday, and I want to make sure I see the best stuff at least. Whats your favorite pieces and where are they?

    It's a commercial gallery but the John Pence Gallery has some amazing stuff.

    Also look up the Shooting Gallery and the White Walls Gallery

    Legion of Honor is having Female Impressionists and the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibitions. Definitely worth to check those two out.

    I really like the De Young Museum. Has a Chihuly exhibition at the moment. Havent been to see that one in particular but I did see the Mayan exhibition just several months back.

    There's the Asian Art Museum. Has some really great stuff for reference. Also has an exhibition, I believe some stuff from the Ming Dynasty.

    There's also SF MOMA (Museum of Modern Art). Don't know what exhibition they have at the moment.

    Hope this helps!

    Big ups for the MOMA! That place is just wonderful to walk through, although the art is... modern. There's still a lot to enjoy.
