SFMOMA now expands to 170,000 square feet, featuring outstanding holdings of more than 33,000 modern and contemporary artworks by Alexander Calder, Frida Kahlo, Julie Mehretu, and numerous others, including an entire floor dedicated solely to photography. With six art-filled terraces, a new sculptural staircase and Roman steps where the public can gather, a variety of dining options, and a Museum store offering artful gift options for everyone, SFMOMA is an unforgettable experience and a must-see San Francisco destination.   The museum is committed to exploring the new, the challenging, and the unexpected. From its internationally recognized and rapidly growing collection of more than thirty thousand artworks to its innovative film and performance programs, SFMOMA has continuously advanced the interpretation, presentation, and preservation of modern and contemporary art — embracing its connection to the world around us. Reflecting the Bay Area’s tradition of technological innovation and forward-thinking, the museum was one of the first American art museums to recognize photography and film as art forms and championed architecture, design, and media arts before they were focuses of museum collecting. The museum houses deep holdings of work by individual artists across their careers, particularly within its Painting and Sculpture collection. The museum is also dedicated to supporting and collecting the work of California artists, especially those active in the Bay Area. Artists are at the center of the work on display. Curators and conservators work directly with artists to interpret, present, and care for artwork across its lifetime, even — as in the case of performance — if it’s only for one night. Located in San Francisco’s bustling SoMA district, SFMOMA is just steps from Yerba Buena Gardens, downtown hotels, the Moscone Center, public transportation (including BART and Muni), and numerous parking garages. SFMOMA's garage on Minna Street is a few steps from the museum's main entrance on Third Street. Plus, parking on-site directly supports the museum. Limited bicycle parking is also available.

We did the SfMOMA and Academy of Science. Both fantastic and the pass was a big cost savings. It was easy to use, you just show your QR code for the pass at the ticket window and they take that as payment. There were a few exhibits at the MOMA that weren’t covered in general admission, but that would be the case with or without the pass and we could have added the cost at the time we checked in to our admission if we had wanted to.

I really enjoyed the tour. About an hours walk. We go up some of the hills so be ready for that. The tour guide Jamie was cool. Really got into the details and was overall a great tour guide. Maybe next time I’ll do the extended tour.

We are a family of 5 and this pass was the best way to save money to explore San Francisco. We did the hop-on bus, the bay cruise, the flyer, one day MuNi pass and the science museum. All with no hassle!

The driver is very responsible and puntual. We enjoy the spacious car provided.. ...

Easy to follow, lots of fun information, possible to jump things on the route.
