Art enthusiasts and classroom doodlers alike find something to talk about at the MOMA – be it the rooftop Blue Bottle coffee, the Warhol collection, or that inexplicable sculpture on the 2nd floor.
Take advantage of the educational opportunities at the museum. Pop on a headset, download the iPhone tour, or grab a docent – all offered for free with your ticket.
On free admission days, crowds are large and lines are long. For a better overall experience, come on a Thursday evening for half-price admission.

Since 1935, modern art lovers have turned to the SF MOMA to showcase the most thought-provoking art – surely an accomplishment in a city that defines itself by being on the cutting edge.
After enjoying the galleries in this architectural gem, visitors flock to the 5th floor sculpture garden – not only for the Calder mobile, but also for the city’s own Blue Bottle Coffee. Located atop the MOMA roof, the garden offers a zen retreat for visitors dish on their favorite art, all while sipping the best coffee in town. And just to pump up the art experience, the MOMA café offers a chance to chow down on the art itself – in the form of a Mondrian cake.
