Comprising the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, we are the largest public arts institution in the City of San Francisco and one of the largest art museums in the United States.
The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco have rendered over a century of public service in the arts, and it is our mission to extend and enhance that service well into this century. More specifically, our mission encompasses the following goals:
The Museums are prohibited from offering valuations, appraisals or authentications of artwork. If you have something you would like to have valued or authenticated please try one of these resources:
Each year the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (de Young and Legion of Honor) receives hundreds of requests for ticket donations to support fundraising efforts by non-profit organizations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
Ticket donations will operate as follows: Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco will donate four (4) complimentary general admission tickets upon request to each non-profit organization [501(c)(3)] that directly benefits children’s education.
"The Board is responsible for the protection and conservation of the assets of the Fine Arts Museums and for setting the public course the Museums will follow. The Board shall assure that the Museums are open, accessible and vital contributors to the cultural life of the City and County, and that the Museums' programs bring art appreciation and education to all the people of the City and County."

Ceramic artist Malloy explores the concept "earth plus mud plus fire makes stone" with a hands-on interactive project. Museum visitors are invited to create surface finishes on "stone" objects to be used in an installation as an offering to our ancestors. Visitors will work with prepared bisque ware, wet clay, and slip-cast molds.
