SF MOMA is one of San Francisco’s newest and coolest art museums. The building is striking, the café is chic, and even the lobby is beautiful. A channel of light tumbles from the top of the building, down the middle, and dances on the first floor atrium. It’s a stunning first impression.
The museum houses more than 23,000 works of art in its 50,000 sq. ft. gallery space. It offers a dynamic schedule of changing exhibits from around the world. SF-MOMA is currently undergoing an expansion that is scheduled for completion in 2016. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
Here’s a guide to each floor:
First floor: Non-exhibition space and a fantastic place to eat. Also has an auditorium.
2nd floor: Atrium, architecture and design, painting and sculpture, visitor education center with a list of programs and activities for kids.
3rd floor: Photography and works on paper.
4th Floor: Special exhibitions terrace, Media arts

This museum forms the nucleus of San Francisco’s reputation as a leading center of modern art. Created in 1935, it moved into its current building in 1995.
