Top 5 Must to Museums in San Francisco
Here are the 5 museums in San Francisco that appeal to the interest of every person.
SFMOMA- San Francisco Museum of Modern Arts
According to stereotypical perceptions, a museum is a place that has centuries-old sculptures, antiques and art pieces. Just take the example of Lahore museum which is one of the best places in Lahore to Visit. The place houses the antiques and statues that are thousands of years old. But, the case is different with SFMOMA- one of the unique museums in San Francisco that exhibit contemporary art. It houses art galleries and floors spread over an area of 170,000 square feet. One floor of the museum is solely dedicated to photography. It also features more than 43000 pieces of contemporary art.

Legion of Honor
Neoclassical building of Legion of Honor is present near the world-famous attractions of Golden Gates Bridge and Lincoln Park. The museum was built in honor of the Californian soldiers who died in World War I. An amusing thing about this place is that it is an amalgam of past and present, as it features the art pieces that date back to 4000 years and exhibits the Skinner pipe organ performances. The building also showcases the finest work of graphic designing as it houses the Achenbach Foundation of Graphic Arts.
Those who don’t have any interest in seeing the artwork can enjoy the music concerts, taking place every weekend.
Museum of Craft and Design
This house of craft and design is one of the less boring museums in San Francisco; because it features the everyday craft and design from North America in particular and rest of the world in general. Watching fresh art pieces that are relatable to the contemporary world is a treat for eyes. A good thing about visiting the place is that it gives unique ideas of home décor and an insight into the modern man’s way of living.
Asian Art Museum
As the name indicates, this place houses the art pieces and exhibits that belong to the Asian continent. The museum’s collection features the diverse items that even date back to 6000 years. The articles include textile, furniture, sculptures, paintings, armor and furniture from India, China, Japan and other Asian countries. The museum offers enough insight into the history of different Asian cultures and a history of the continent.
