The best museums and galleries in San Francisco


The art scene in San Francisco has always been vibrant and innovative. From the Bay Area Figurative School of the 50's to photography giants like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, we are gifted to have some of best art works of the 20th, and this century.

For 7 hours we will immerse ourselves in the best museums and galleries SF has. I have been in SF for 43 years and was a docent with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for 20 years, so you can count on us visiting the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Legion of Honor and the Palace of Fine Arts.

And we will also visit the more significant galleries in SF like, Bergruen, 111 Minna, Gallery 444, and some of the many galleries at 49 Geary, including any special requests you may have.

If you are into art as much as I am, then this is a must tour for you to discover what I know to be the most notable art works in San Fran.

Fantastic tour guide! He was punctual, knowledgeable, and highly professional. We spent time not only exploring the highlights of major museums, but also the local art culture. I highly recommend that if you are looking for an art centric tour use Ader!
