COVID-19 safety guidelines

We are excited to welcome you to the Museums! 

In accordance with City and County of San Francisco guidance, masking is strongly recommended but no longer required while inside the de Young or Legion of Honor. Proof of vaccination is not required for regular museum or café visits, but is a requirement to attend some onsite events.

We continue to have safety measures in place to ensure that we have a safe and healthy environment for our visitors and staff. The measures include frequent cleaning of high-touch areas, sanitizing stations, and Plexiglass shields at our ticket and membership desks.

Guidelines for your visit

If you’re sick

If you are showing COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home. This is critical to the health and safety of our staff and communities. Our staff is available to help rebook your tickets for a later date at no extra charge via phone at 800.777.9996 for members and 888.901.6645 for non-members.

Face masks

Per city guidelines, masks are strongly recommended but no longer required while indoors. Should local health conditions change, masking requirements and other health precautions may be reimposed.
