Opened in 1894 for San Francisco's Midwinter International Exposition and bearing the name of S.F. Chronicle publisher and famed media mogul M.H. de Young, the de Young Museum has been a major S.F. cultural landmark and respected museum ever since. The de Young Museum houses a world-class collection of American painting, sculpture, and decorative art, African, Oceanic, and Native American art, and textiles and contemporary crafts. In addition, the museum hosts fantastic temporary exhibitions and is located in the picturesque Golden Gate Park, a work of art in its own right. Reopened after sweeping renovations finished in late 2005, the de Young is once again ready to occupy its place as one of the City's great repositories of art.
