Welcome to SFMOMA! Plan an unforgettable visit with friends and family to one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art in the United States, and discover work by artists from around the world, including Frida Kahlo, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, and Julie Mehretu. Stroll through our outdoor sculpture garden, experience our thirty-foot living wall, refuel in one of three energizing eateries, and take in incredible views — all right in the heart of the city.

 The well-being and safety of our community and staff are our top priority. In keeping with city, county, and state regulations regarding large gatherings, and to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the museum and its stores and restaurants are temporarily closed, as is the Artists Gallery at Fort Mason. All visits, tours, and events are postponed or canceled at this time.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful galleries and relaxing public spaces, and to sharing the art of our time with you, very soon. In the meantime, head to SFMOMA’s Museum From Home page to find artist interviews, videos, educational materials, and more highlights from our expansive digital collection.
