Visit Us

Listen to an artist fill our lecture hall with urgent debate, lie in the grass under a giant safety pin, watch from the tower as a fog bank rolls in from the ocean, study the tiny figures of the Akan gold-weights or the dizzying sweep of Frederic Edwin Church’s Rainy Season in the Tropics, discuss it all with friends and family in our café, surrounded by the eucalyptus and redwoods of Golden Gate Park.

9:30 am–5:15 pm

Closed Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Check our calendar for special hours.
