Short Version: Worth every penny, saves you plenty of money, especially if you are there a while.
The details: The one problem I will share was completely my fault which is this: Don't give yourself only three days for San Francisco! We didn't get to everything we wanted to including the MOMA which we had free admission to thanks to this awesome city pass. This pass gives you free transportation for a week! That alone could pay for itself if you are there for the full seven days. But on top of that, we were able to go to the Exploratorium (incredible hands on science museum), the California Academy of Sciences (another incredible science museum with a man made rainforest you can walk through and a planetarium all in one building), and a few other great attractions. Each attraction is around $25 or more so if you get to all of them you are once again getting your money's worth. I highly recommend this pass to anybody who is visiting San Fran for the first time and is planning on visiting some of these awesome attractions (if you are not, you can just get a metro pass for three days to get around the city).

This is definitely a top-flight museum. But even more impressive is the building itself. A gorgeous setting and worth a visit in its own right.

The paradedign exhibit was very interesting. Looking forward to the Matisse, Picasso, and Parisian avante-garde collection in May!
Worth every penny since we rode the cable cars, MUNI buses and F line streetcars numerous times. Skipping the lines at the California Academy of Sciences and the SFMOMA saved us some time to enjoy the exhibits more. We were also able to see Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne and Beyond Exhibit at the De Young Museum with special ticket prices (would have been much better if it was free with city pass, but considering that we saw priceless works of art from musee d'orsay, paying 15 dollars each was quite a discount...) I would recommend buying the city pass. The only downside is that you have to figure out on your own what mode of transportation or bus/cable car/streetcar you should ride because the MUNI rides have their own routes. City Pass lists all rides that will pass each attraction but you should have a MUNI map with you with all the routes at all times. For example, from Market St/Union Square area, you cannot ride the 44 bus which stops directly in front of the academy. Instead, we had to ride the 5 bus and walk about 2 blocks more to get there. Study the MUNI routes first before your trip so you could manage your time easily with regards to travel time to each attraction.
The CityPass was an excellent deal and it is something that every traveler to SF should invest in. The Aquarium of the Bay was less than stellar but the MOMA and Cal Academy of Sciences made up for it. We were a little disappointed that the Tutankhamen exhibit was extra at the deYoung. The MUNI pass was a great deal and allowed us to avoid the expense of a rental. Be prepared to wait in line for a cable car. Print the MUNI map from the web site and work with your hotel concierge to maximize the use and savings.We also used the discounted ticket to the AT&T Park Tour and it was excellent.
