This unique museum opened in 1935 as the San Francisco Museum of Art and originally only showcased art from the 20th century. In 1995, the museum moved to its current location and occupies a striking building designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. Today, the museum houses a large collection of 20th century artists; highlights include Jackson Pollock, Ansel Adams, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, and many more. Although only a limited number of works are on display at a time, the museum frequently rotates their collection and also features various temporary exhibitions throughout the year. They also offer many public programs, including teacher workshops and in-depth spotlights on different exhibitions.
