A Visit To De Young Museum

Our visit to De Young Museum was pretty much unplanned. Without any plans on what to do in San Francisco, we decided to take the Big Bus Tours–which I highly recommend. As the bus was making a stop in Golden Gate park, my sister and I saw the giant decals posted the windows that says OSCAR DELA RENTA. De Young Museum is one of San Francisco’s fine arts museum — the other one, is Legion of Honor. From time to time, De Young hosts special fashion exhibits like YSL and Gaultier. This time, there was an ongoing exhibit of Oscar dela Renta’s works. We bought tickets two days in advance since the exhibit has a timed schedule and it gets sold out fast.

The tickets we bought includes Oscar’s exhibit and entrance to the temporary exhibits and permanent collections. We were scheduled to go in at 12:30. To maximize our day, we decided to go around the rest of the museum first. I will save Oscar dela Renta’s exhibit for another post – trust me, It deserves a solo post.

View from the Hamon Observation Tower. Entrance here is free. If you want a 360 view of San Francisco, this is one of the places you should visit.

Out of everything in the main gallery, I stared at this the longest. This was created by using 18 cameras simultaneously taking a shot of the same scenery. Since the cameras are angled differently, some scenes do overlap while some become in sync with the rest of the panels. I swear, you could just sit in front of this for hours and somehow hope that things would just fall into place- I must say, this is such a therapeutic sight to see.

De Young Museum is located in Golden Gate Park  (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive, San Francisco). Visit their webpage to get more details on upcoming exhibits and shows.
