Even having pre-paid for admission, we still had to wait in a long line to get the voucher exchanged for a ticket to get into the museum. The museum itself was fun and interesting I especially liked the tower.
Such a great treat to visit the de Young Museum! I have been here more times that I can count on two hands and it never fails to disappoint. They’re always featuring fabulous exhibits that would be a shame to miss. My favorite ones have been, The Art of Bulgari and the most recent (and current!), Oscar De La Renta exhibit. Had the opportunity to go with my mom and sister for this past Mother’s Day. They too, were saying what a fun day it was. My mom even said, “This has been the best Mother’s Day!”. If you’re in SF and find yourself in Golden Gate Park, be sure to visit the de Young Museum.
The Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the de Young was absolutely stunning. They showcased dresses from the start to end of de la Renta's career. If you're interested to learn about his technique and style, you must get the audio tour!
