My boyfriend and I like art museums, but we'd say we prefer "traditional" art over modern. This museum is more modern - it has cool rotating and non-rotating exhibits and I like that it showcases local talent, but it likes to feature "thinking" art. Less "Van Gogh painting" and more "essence of the Black Lives Matter movement sculpture. However, I will say that I very much like how the building is organized - very easy to get around in!

Just saw the Frida Kahlo exhibit on the 14th October. Not interested in commenting on the exhibit itself. You either like her or you don't. It felt dangerous to be there. While they control the number of people who can enter at any given hour, there is no control once inside the exhibit itself. Far too many people in too small a space with groups of people clustering around most of the pictures/photos etc. Everybody was wearing a mask but there wasn't even the slightest attempt to enforce any kind of social distancing. Very disappointing. I feel compelled to go into quarantine and get tested for covid-19 before going out into the world again.

I’ve missed being in museums since California shut down and my health conditions have kept me from venturing into any museums since they’re reopened. But I called ahead and found out about all their new cleaning and safety policies and felt good about checking out the de young. Glad to say the experience in person matched with what I was told on the phone. Thank you for keeping guests safe, it’s nice to have a slice of normalcy without sacrificing safety in the process.

I took my young son. It’s a beautiful building with beautiful art inside, it was a bit difficult to manage a young child and keep him interested but there was a lot of space thanks to the limited capacity and timed entry. Definitely come with time to take it all in, I wasn’t able to enjoy it as much while trying to entertain a 10 month old, possible, but probably better as an adult only trip.

I purchased 2 audio tickets and 2 general admittance to The Frida exhibit, however I did not know that I needed the special exhibit tickets as well. I should of not been able to purchase the audio tickets if I did not have the special exhibit tickets first. I feel that the museum needs to work this out. I drove 250 miles to see the exhibit. Luckly I was able to see the general exhibit at least which was interesting in itself.
