Things To Do In San Francisco: The de Young Museum


A few months ago, I told you about the John Paul Gaultier exhibit at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.  The museum also hosts many other collections, as well as an observation tower that has incredible views of the city, gift shops, and a cafe.  Here are some of the other pictures I took while visiting.

 The museum from the Music Concourse.  There is an 144' tall observation tower on the far right side.


There is a continuous crack that runs north from the edge of the Music Concourse roadway in the front of the museum, up the main walkway, through the courtyard, and up to the main entrance.  The crack bisects these stone slabs which serve as outdoor seating.  This piece is called Drawn Stone by Andy Goldsworthy.
