Free Saturdays

Starting October 19, 2019, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco will offer free general admission every Saturday for all residents of the nine Bay Area counties.

Join us at the de Young and Legion of Honor Museums to explore our permanent collections and enjoy a variety of free programming celebrating this city that we love.

Soul of a Nation Programming

Honoring the incredible legacy of Black Power in the San Francisco Bay Area, the de Young museum is proud to announce a line-up of programming and partners tied to celebrating the landmark exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983. Featuring renowned artists, performers, musicians, activists, civic leaders, and others, these programs welcome special guests from around the Bay Area to bring Black Power to the forefront of our winter programming season.

Every Saturday, Bay Area residents receive discounted admission to Soul of a Nation for only $10. Discount is redeemable on-site only. In addition, the de Young museum is offering free admission to the entire museum, including free entry to Soul of a Nation, for all visitors on four Saturdays throughout the run of the exhibition.
